AAPA’s 2018 Capital Projects Seminar in Norfolk

Officials representing U.S. Department of Transportation grant programs, industrial land development specialists, economists, planning experts and port authority executives from throughout the Western Hemisphere will assemble in Norfolk, Va., May 8-9, to participate in the 2018 Capital Projects Seminar.

Among the conference highlights will be a presentation focusing on how ports can tap into billions of dollars in new money available for federal Department of Transportation infrastructure grants such as BUILD, INFRA and marine highways.

To assist ports and other government entities in developing innovative agreements with private-sector partners to help leverage existing dollars and federal grant funds, a team from Nossaman, LLP, led by Brian Papernik, will take seminar participants through an exercise to explore various issues and topics that arise when using public-private partnerships to deliver infrastructure projects.

In a session titled Balancing Land-Use Conflicts and Solutions, McLaren Engineering Group engineer Catherine Hale will lead a panel showcasing examples of infrastructure projects which faced significant land-use obstacles before pioneering solutions were used to get them back on track.

The seminar, hosted by the Virginia Port Authority and presented by the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA), will take place at the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel.
