How can RAC membership help me?

A number of resources are available through the RAC/SCOR website. These include:

  • Lists of contacts in other agencies and organizations you may need.
  • A map with links to information about the research in all state DOTs.
  • Information about the TRB cooperative research programs in highways, transit, airports, freight, and hazardous materials. In particular, the NCHRP is AASHTO’s research program and was developed to address the day to day research needs of state transportation departments.
  • Knowing what to do when – a model calendar for transportation research managers.
  • Many RAC members use the listserv frequently to survey the current state of practice in a given subject area.  The results will be posted on the website for others to benefit.
  • Network and meet new colleagues through various opportunities such as attending annual meetings, participating in the mentoring program, and volunteering on task forces.
