The New York Chapter’s 2014 Annual Equipment & Products Exposition will be hosted on Wednesday, May 21, 2014, by the Southeast New York Branch and the Town of Orangetown Highway Department at their facility just over the Tappan Zee Bridge in Rockland County. The facility has previously hosted this event, and has been positively received by our members and exhibitors alike. The site, convenient to major roadways (see attached map), is rather expansive with more than ample space to display all of your commodities.
Chairs and tables are available if needed, and electricity is available on a limited basis, for small usage only (first come first serve). Equipment will be permitted to be brought to the site the evening before and must be removed no later than the morning after.
The show will be advertised through our 1000 person mailing list covering the tri state area, local papers, news media, etc. and we encourage early registration since we will list those early registered exhibitors in all our future advertisements, mailings and promotions. Also, because of the shows proximity to New Jersey, we will also be providing mailings to the Public Works Officials in the APWA New Jersey Chapter.
Exhibition space is priced as follows - $350 for a single space (15’ x 25’), $200 for each additional contiguous space. A limited number of $225 table only space (10’ x 10’) will be provided. Early registrants will receive 2 free lunch tickets with a full booth purchase! Early registration cost for additional buffet lunch is $15each, ($20 at the door)

2013 Annual Membership Meeting and Awards Dinner
Dear Fellow Public Works Managers,
The Cornell Local Roads Program is recruiting municipalities for the Cornell Local Roads Pavement Management Summer Intern Project for the summer of 2014. They are looking for small agencies who would like to implement pavement management but are not sure how to overcome some of the common barriers to implementation.
A Pavement Management program allows highway departments to justify how roadway maintenance should be prioritized and how funding should be best spent to maximize the use of the limited funding we are all dealing with in today’s economic climate. The Project focuses on maintaining good roads in good condition, while improving poorer roads over time as funding allows.
Interested highway agencies who desire to be involved must contact the Cornell Local Roads Program (see contact information below) by the end of February. This will allow them to recruit the college students who are the interns before they leave for Spring Break.
Details about the summer project can be found on the webpage, www.clrp.cornell.edu.
