The National Council for Public-Private-Partnerships (NCPPP), co-sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), would like to invite you to attend a 1 ½ day workshop on public-private-partnerships (PPP’s). The workshops will provide an in-depth exploration of how PPP’s can foster the development, financing, and operation of major public transportation projects and related infrastructure.

The first of four workshops takes place on March 25-26, 2009, in Atlanta, Georgia. (See accompanying flyer for details on these four events.)
The dates and places of the workshops are:

Atlanta, GA – March 25-26, 2009
Chicago, IL — May 19-20, 2009
San Diego, CA — July 7-8, 2009
Boston, MA — September 16-17, 2009

These workshops build on similar events held last year, which proved highly successful in bringing together public transit operators, local and state transportation officials, investment firms, planning organizations, developers and other active or potential players in the PPP arena.

This year’s workshops will offer a sophisticated and realistic overview of how PPPs can be implemented in the public transportation industry. Case study presentations will illuminate the real-world benefits and risks of PPPs, while showcasing the flexibility and variety of PPP arrangements to suit different environments.  Special consideration will also be given to the implications of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (the stimulus) on PPPs.

I encourage you to sign up now for one of these workshops. I hope that you will come away with a meaningful understanding of PPPs—while making valuable connections with new partners or advisors at the meeting.

I strongly encourage you to register and participate in any of these workshops. Registration and additional information may be found at www.ncppp.org.
