AASHTO, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, is holding a management conference (PDF, 608K) in Portland starting June 25th.
No word yet on whether the National Guard will be called out to defend the city.
A few session topics:
- The Private Sector’s Role in State DOTs
- Managing through Crisis and Change
Seriously, welcome folks, and study what you see carefully.
Hat tip to Jonathan Maus for passing us this info.

…so that you may not repeat our mistakes elsewhere.
Looking nationally, it is apparent to me that it is Portland that has dodged many of the mistakes (or, at least corrected them) of “elsewhere”.
