NCAMPO 2015 Conference
“At the Crossroads”
April 29 - May 1, 2015
About the Conference
The 2015 North Carolina MPO Conference will be an excellent continuing educational opportunity that will attract a diverse range of transportation planning professionals. The Conference features a comprehensive array of high quality technical sessions, special speakers, and timely agency updates. More than 300 participants from MPOs, RPOs, NCDOT, the consultant community, transit agencies, and other organizations are expected to attend the conference. While transportation planners, engineers, and consultants make up the core participants, the conference also offers an opportunity for transit administrators, elected officials, land-use planners, students, and others to learn more about a variety of transportation related topics.
Registration costs and hotel rates are being finalized, but for budgeting purposes, we anticipate the registration fee to be between $175 and $200, with a discount for students. The conference hotel is the Sheraton Raleigh, and the room rate is $169 for single or double occupancy. All presenters must register for the conference and pay the conference registration fee to attend the conference; being accepted as a presenter does not register you.
Most of the technical sessions will occur on April 30th, with two 90-minute time slots in the morning and two in the afternoon. Some sessions may be scheduled on the afternoon of April 29th as well. Three sessions will run concurrently during each time slot, for a total of 12-15 sessions. Each session is typically 90 minutes and features an average of three speakers with time for questions, so each presentation averages approximately 20 to 30 minutes in length.
The conference is presented by the NC Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations and the NC Association of Rural Planning Organizations in cooperation with NCDOT.
When available, more detailed conference information will be posted on this page.

E-mail your submissions using the form to the Capital Area MPO at email@example.com by January 16, 2015. We hope to notify you by February 13th if your proposal has been selected.
