ATSSA’s Communications Department is extremely diverse and works diligently to “Advance
Roadway Safety” by communicating roadway safety issues to ATSSA members,
the media and others outside the association and the industry. The department produces
award-winning educational videos, writes press releases, and gathers statistical
data from a variety of sources for article publication and member information.
The department is also responsible for speech writing, media training, photography,
attending and coordinating national meetings and events and managing ATSSA.com.
Since 1999, the department has led National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) activities
in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area in partnership with the Federal Highway
Administration and other industry partners.
Every three months, The Signal, a quarterly, full-color newsletter, is
published, and every other week, The Flash is sent to ATSSA members and
those outside the association interested in roadway safety issues. The latter contains
current industry news, government relations activities and information compiled
from a diverse variety of roadway safety organizations, companies and associations.
The Flash is distributed electronically, by fax or by mail worldwide.
The Communication Department also serves as the association's webmaster, managing
over 300 pages of ATSSA.com.
