Public Works Leaders to Gather at National Infrastructure Renewal Summit

Event to Focus on Funding and Implementation of Infrastructure Renewal Initiatives Essential to President Obama’s American Jobs Act

New York, NY, September 10, 2011 --( Senior public works administrators will meet in Fort Lauderdale, FL from December 4-6th, for the inaugural National Infrastructure Renewal Summit (NIRS).

This invitation-only summit will join public administrators from our nation’s largest municipalities with infrastructure service providers for three days of project analysis and the sharing of best practices. Municipalities currently scheduled to present include: the County of Los Angeles, Dallas County, City of New York, and the City of Portland among others. Public officials will meet to discuss priorities in spending in areas such as roadways, water systems, sewers, bridges and transportation systems.

"With infrastructure funding a vital component of President Obama’s American Jobs Act unveiled this evening, participation in NIRS has now become even more essential for leaders of our nation’s public works departments and construction service providers alike," says Craig Lehmann, President and CEO of CraigMichaels, the organization producing the summit. “We recognized early-on the importance of providing a meeting place for public administrators to discuss how to address our crumbling infrastructure,” says Lehmann.
