Asphalt Pavement Resilience, Part 2: Pavement Resilience in Practice
Speakers: John Hickey, Asphalt Pavement Association of Oregon; Amir Golalipour, Ph.D, P.E., Federal Highway Administration; James T. Pappas III, P.E., , Delaware DOT and Mahear Abou Eid, P.E., Alaska Department of Transportation
Date: February 3, 2021 1:00 - 2:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Description: Roads and highways play an essential role in a community's ability to deliver necessary services after a natural disaster. Pavements also need to be adaptable to changing environmental conditions, such as more frequent flooding from sea level rise and weather pattern changes. There are factors to consider in designing and repairing pavements to improve adaptability and ensure that the resources are readily available to make necessary repairs quickly. This webinar uses examples from recent storms, floods, and earthquakes to teach owners and agencies how to prepare for post-natural disaster needs and how to create a more resilient transportation network.
1. Identify the factors that led to successful natural disaster responses for roadway infrastructure in different communities and environmental conditions.
2. Understand the unexpected challenges and obstacles that should be considered beforehand to enable the production and placement of asphalt pavement following a natural disaster.
3. Learn how the availability of different equipment and material technologies can make pavements more adaptable and help a community respond to a natural disaster.

Anatomy of an Antitrust Case
Speaker: Brian Schoolman, Attorney, Safran Law Offices in Raleigh, NC
Date: March 4, 2021 2:00 - 3:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Description: Anatomy of an Antitrust Case: It’s easy to know that you aren’t allowed to violate antitrust laws. It’s much harder to be sure what actions are likely to attract the attention of the authorities (or your competitors) and put you at risk for antitrust violations. Brian Schoolman, an attorney with Safran Law Offices in Raleigh, NC, will discuss some of the bright lines that most frequently trigger liability, as well as how the actions of contractors have exposed themselves to civil and criminal enforcement actions. This webinar will also analyze “safe harbors” and best practices for avoiding risk of antitrust penalties for NAPA members.
