Task 41, FY 1990, "AASHTO Guide for Recruitment and Retention of Transportation Professionals" (Dr. Herb Golden and Ms. Leslie Collins). Study activity has been in support of the AASHTO Task Force on Civil Engineer and Transportation Professional Development and Recruitment. A professional writer (Herb Golden) was hired to assist in the preparation of The AASHTO Guide to Recruitment and Retention of Civil Engineers and to support the introduction of the Guide at the AASHTO Workshop on Transportation Careers held in Detroit, Michigan, on April 30 and May 1, 1990. Workshop support included a videotape of the Workshop to be used as reference material to the Guide. The Guide is available to AASHTO member departments. An additional objective was to provide assistance in developing pilot program material for the evolving AASHTO Transportation Civil Engineers (TRAC) Careers Center. Ms. Leslie Collins, a public relations consultant, was added to the research team to provide this assistance. Subsequently, TRAC became a program within AASHTO. (NCHRP Staff: C.F. Jencks)
