Innovation in Vertical and Horizontal Construction: Lessons for the Transportation Industry

Appendix B - Local Organizing Committees

Local Organizing Committees assisted CERF in organizing the meetings. CERF enlisted the help of senior executives of companies that are members of its Corporate Advisory Board. Local Group Leaders were identified in each of the three metropolitan areas. They provided invaluable assistance by identifying the key players in vertical and horizontal construction in their area and inviting them to participate in the meetings as presenters, discussants, moderators, or guides for field trips.

The members of the New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles Organizing Committees are listed the following Tables. The three Local Group Leaders are identified by an asterisk.
