Workgroup Goal

To review, develop and maintain current and future partnerships on behalf of the National Local Technical Assistance Association (NLTAPA) Centers.

Workgroup Mission

Partnering activities allow NLTAPA to leverage resources among organizations with similar goals and objectives. NLTAPA currently maintains 3 national level, formal partnerships with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the American Public Works Association (APWA), and the National Association of County Engineers (NACE). Each LTAP/TTAP Center operates independently and National LTAP Association (NLTAPA) partnerships are not an inclusive agreement with all of the centers. Partnering agreements with NLTAPA are created through an established process. After careful review, partnerships with the NLTAPA are only entered into with organizations that have a national influence and could benefit a number of Centers. Partnership agreements are developed with benefit to both organizations and those benefits are spelled out in each agreement.
