Frequently Asked Questions

What is Infrastructure Week?

From May 15th to 19th, organizations and individuals around America  – from trade associations and local chambers of commerce to mayors and individual citizens – host events, tour new and innovative projects, talk about infrastructure in national, local and social media, and show policymakers at all levels of government the breadth and diversity of support for long-term, sustainable infrastructure funding and finance.

Where does Infrastructure Week take place?

Infrastructure week doesn’t take place in any one location, but instead happens from May 15th to 19th across America and online as organizations of all types host events and share their stories about the importance of infrastructure to our economy, jobs, national security, and more.

Do you provide conference or event space?

Infrastructure Week does not provide space for groups to host events, but we are happy to work with you to find partners, as well as promoting your work through our website, blog, and social media.

Is there a cost to participate?

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

I can’t host an event.  How can I do to participate in Infrastructure Week?

There are lots of ways to get involved!  You can get active on social media, write to Congress, and attend events in your community.  We’re happy to help you find the best way to make your voice heard.  Feel free to contact us at partnerships@infrastructureweek.org.

Who leads Infrastructure Week?

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.  Specifically, the week is convened by 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.

Are you affiliated with any political groups? What are your policy positions?

Infrastructure Week is non-partisan and does not take a position on any legislation or elections. We are excited to work any group interested in talking about the importance of America’s roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports, water and sewer systems, the energy grid, and more.
