MTAP Networking & Travel
A portion of annual MTAP dues is set aside for a networking fund. The purpose of the fund is to assist member states with the cost of participating in training, meetings and conferences, providing technical assistance or networking with their peers at other departments of transportation. Through the networking activities, DOTs have the opportunity to learn about possible solutions or innovations that will assist the state agency in its procedures and its work with transportation operators and federal counterparts.
