2018 Annual IAHD Convention November 12 – 16, 2018 Coeur d’Alene Resort
2018 IAHD Convention
The IAHD strives to keep our members at the cutting edge. During the convention, attendees will increase their training and network policymakers, representatives from leading companies in the industry, and fellow highway professionals.
This year, we want to give our members an option to learn about topics that are of most interest to them. Therefore, the 2018 IAHD Convention will allow members to attend sessions that are interesting to them and related to their profession.
Sessions will include topics such as:
- Policy related courses will cultivate the knowledge needed to confidently discuss issues with legislators and express concerns facing highway district to ensure the longevity of local roads and funding.
- Technical courses will focus on contemporary methods and new products in the construction industry.
- Legal sessions will keep agencies compliant with current laws and provide attendees an opportunity to speak with specialized attorneys.
Think about your fellow highway district employees, who has gone above and beyond this year? Whether it be someone in your district or someone reliable who you always call when you have a question. Well, it is time we recognize them during our Annual Gala! This year we will be awarding Commissioner of the Year and Clerk of the Year to deserving and dedicated individuals.
