WHAT OUR SATISFIED MEMBERS SAY
Rich Juliano, American Road & Transportation Builders Association
“ARTBA has been proud to have ATB carry our charter in Arizona and the Southwestern U.S. since 2002. We jointly advocate for our members in seeking to grow transportation investment, reform burdensome regulations, and ensure that safety and efficiency are maximized on our members’ projects. We can only do this with the active participation of chapters like yours. ATB’s contractors have regularly provided ARTBA valuable insight into federal issues and how they affect Southern Arizona. BJ and Lexi are continuing a strong collaboration between the professional staffs of our two associations. I always look forward to visiting Tucson, not only because it’s a great destination, but also because I can learn from ATB’s members, staff and public sector partners every time I am there.”
Jenn Escarcega, Miura Contracting
“As a small business owner and an active member on the Board of Arizona Transportation Builders Association, we are all working together as a team to help build a stronger community through this association (made up of engineers, contractors, subcontractors, public agencies, suppliers and vendors) I have seen this association grow and has become stronger. Lexi Saavedra, Member Services Coordinator is a very hard worker and has made ALL members feel welcomed, heard and appreciated. I am looking forward to working along the side on the new Executive Director, Michele Bettini”
Jim DeGrood, Regional Transportation Authority
“I greatly appreciate the role ATB plays in regional transportation issues. A safe, efficient, and cost-effective transportation network is essential to our region’s growth and prosperity. ATB’s leadership and members are actively engaged in the issues that affect both our industry, and the regional economy. ATB is continuing advocacy for the RTA, and its efforts to increase awareness of the growing transportation-funding gap are particularly valuable. ATB and its members can always be counted on to assist us in our mutual efforts to improve the quality and cost effectiveness of the infrastructure improvements our community depends upon.”
Fred Narcaroti, Ninyo & Moore
“ATB has a long running history of building relationships between the public/private sectors throughout its history and continues to be a pillar in our community. The success of the association is really driven by the leadership and continuity of the organization since it is comprised of volunteers from great companies that understand the industry. One way to identify ATB as a leader in Tucson is that municipal leaders will regularly reach out to the Executive Director and request information on proposed changes, whether they are technical or political. Although the association has been around for 30+ years, the success is the ability to maintain relevance within the community and industry to be a sounding board for contractors, associates and municipal members to learn and succeed together.”
Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, Tucson
“I want to personally express my gratitude to ATB, its leadership, and membership, for being an early supporter of Proposition 409, which is allowing the City, to provide $100 million of major arterial and street improvements to the citizens of Tucson. When others doubted, the leadership of ATB stood up, did the right thing, helped formulate some of the significant strategies that led to the Proposition’s success, like the creation of the Citizen Oversight Committee, and changed the dialogue in our City.The vote was close and without ATB’s support, I do not know that we would have crossed the finish line. Again, thank you.”
