In addition to participating on the panel discussion, Levenick also provided the opening remarks at the event's ARTBA Foundation Awards Luncheon where he spoke about the importance of organizations like ARTBA.

"We're all here today because we share a common goal - to aggressively grow and protect transportation infrastructure investment to meet the public and business demand for safe and efficient travel. It seems like simple common sense when stated like that. But we all know that given today's current political and economic climate, it's anything but simple. That's why organizations like ARTBA and AEM are so important. They leverage the collective strength of like-minded individuals and organizations to help affect positive change. And, that's why this convention is so important," said Levenick.

ARTBA is the oldest transportation advocacy group in the United States. Founded in 1902, ARTBA has played a major leadership role in the development of federal transportation policy and legislation and continues to advocate for strong federal investment in transportation to meet the public demand for safe travel and efficient movement of people and goods.
