(Nov. 30, 2021) – The American Traffic Safety Services Association welcomes Rear Adm. Scott Moore, who led the Navy’s elite SEALs for 30 years, as keynote speaker for its 52nd Annual Convention & Traffic Expo set for Tampa, Florida, in February. Moore led SEAL Teams through more than 2,000 of the most extreme, high-stakes missions including raids against key leaders in Afghanistan and hostage rescue operations during his decades-long military career. He also served as director of counterterrorism at the National Security Council and deputy director for special operations at the Pentagon where he reported to then-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen. Today, Moore shares lessons on leadership, the importance of cohesion for successful teamwork and insights on recruiting, training and equipping teams to exceed expectations. “The lessons Moore learned during his exceptional Navy career offer tremendous application for our members,” said ATSSA President & CEO Stacy Tetschner. “The insights he gained through team building, through situations where he needed to adjust strategy to meet changing conditions, and in situations where lives were at stake have direct application for our members who are devoted to saving lives on the nation’s roadways. I look forward to learning from Moore as he shares lessons learned through his incredible career serving our nation.” Moore will speak Feb. 13 during the Sunday general session of the 2022 Convention & Traffic Expo. After holding its 2021 event in virtual format, ATSSA’s 2022 Convention & Traffic Expo reunites members of the roadway safety infrastructure industry in Tampa, Feb. 11-15. The event brings together people representing every facet of the industry from guardrails to pavement markings to connected and automated vehicles. The Association inaugurates two councils in 2022. The Roadway Worker Protection Council aims to heighten the focus on worker safety and develop resources to assist companies if tragedy strikes. The Women in Roadway Safety Council was established as a way for women to network and develop leadership skills within a male-dominated field. ATSSA’s Annual Convention & Traffic Expo is the premier gathering of roadway safety infrastructure professionals from across North America. It offers nearly 50 education sessions, multiple networking opportunities and a massive Traffic Expo displaying the latest industry tools and technology, all at the 200,000-square-foot Tampa Convention Center. The annual New Products Rollout enables companies to put their new ideas in front of the industry and before a panel of judges made up of department of transportation officials from across the country. From this group, three items are chosen for Innovation Awards and given the coveted opportunity to present their winning entries at ATSSA’s Circle of Innovation, where DOT representatives from across the nation evaluate items for possible deployment. The Convention & Traffic Expo also includes recognition of multiple awards including the Industry Achievement Award, the Mark of Excellence Award, the National Safety Award and the National Media Award.
