Frequently Asked Questions

What is Infrastructure Week?

The 6th annual National Infrastructure Week will take place from May 14th to 21st, 2018. Infrastructure Week is led by its Steering Committee and more than 300 Affiliates telling the story of America’s infrastructure, its impact on the economy and society, and what is needed to bring it into the 21st century. United around our 2018 message – The future won’t wait. Neither can we. It’s #TimeToBuild – these groups and thousands of individuals around the country will host events, tour new and innovative projects, talk about infrastructure in national, local and social media, and discuss solutions to our infrastructure challenges – from funding and financing to the role of the Federal government to technology innovation and sustainability.

Who leads Infrastructure Week?

Infrastructure Week, now in its 6th year, is a not-for-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. Infrastructure Week was founded and is led by its Steering Committee – a bipartisan team that includes leading business groups, labor unions, and think tanks working to improve America’s infrastructure. Our Steering Committee consists of the AFL-CIO, the American Society of Civil Engineers, Building America’s Future, Business Roundtable, the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, and the Value of Water Campaign.

Is there a cost to participate?

There is no cost to join as an Affiliate, and our staff will support your organization, facilitate partnerships, and help coordinate events and media to highlight the infrastructure issues critical to your stakeholders.
