Upcoming Delaware T2/LTAP Center Training
- None currently scheduled
Roadway Management Conference 2020
- The 2020 Roadway Management Conference will be held in a virtual format, on a smaller scale, instead of the on-site conference originally planned for October in Charlottesville, VA. Registration is open and free for this year, in consideration of our lessened costs to host it and the strained training budgets due to COVID-19. Details, including the agenda and registration are on the RMC website, so save October 26 and 27, 2020 on your calendars; better yet, register today. Looking ahead, we have already signed the contracts to hold the 2021 RMC in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware October 6-8, 2021.
