  4. 4. CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE Welcome to Rancho Palos Verdes, California and the 2014 ARTBA National Convention! Beyond this beautiful seaside location, we have for you a program filled with meaningful sessions and insightful speakers. During our awards luncheon on Monday, September 8, we will hear from a very unusual speaker with a powerful and inspiring story. Gunnar Hanson, a decorated former Navy Seal turned pastor, nearly threw all of his accomplish-ments away during one stupid night. Now known as “Pastor Gunnar,” he will discuss some of his personal losses, and the lessons learned from them, and share the keys to his perseverance. Initiated last year in Milwaukee and back by popular demand is the “State of the Transportation Construction Industry” panel discussion with key industry executives sharing their perspectives on “big picture” issues ahead, which will take place Tuesday, September 9. Also that day, the ARTBA government affairs and economics teams will update you on the latest developments surrounding the Highway Trust Fund and the reauthorization of MAP-21, as well as a construction market conditions report and an early forecast for 2015. Throughout the week, spouses have the opportunity to take in the local sights, with visits to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, and the world-famous Getty Museum. 4 2014 ARTBA National Convention Finally, on a very special evening, September 9, we will host a banquet to introduce Nick Ivanoff of New York-based Ammann & Whitney as our 2014- 15 ARTBA Chairman. At the event, our old friend and veteran Holly-wood comedian Larry Miller, who had us laughing at the 2007 and 2011 conventions, will return for an encore performance. Special thanks are due to our hosts and double platinum sponsors—Southern California Contractors Association and Caterpillar Inc.—for their generosity. We also deeply appre-ciate the support of all our meet-ing sponsors. A complete list of them can be found on page 6. We hope you enjoy your time at the ARTBA National Conven-tion.

  12. 12. FEATURED SPEAKERS Opening Lunch “Leadership & Life Lessons Learned” from a U.S. Navy Seal Gunnar Hanson, Pastor, Valley Baptist Church U.S. Navy Seal training is so brutal that fewer than 20 percent of candidates actually finish the course. Gunnar Hanson was one of the few chosen, but then nearly blew his accomplishments away one foolish night. Fortunately, he learned to use his past as a bridge to help others when his heart, mind and life were unshackled. Now known as “Pastor Gunnar,” he will highlight his training experience, discuss some of the personal losses he faced during war and the lessons learned from them. Gunnar served in the U.S. Navy from July 1993 to March 2005, when he was honorably discharged. In May 2007, Gunnar was invited to revitalize Valley Baptist Church in Valley Center, California. After much prayer, Gunnar, with the support of his wife, Anna, took a leap of faith and decided to take on the mission God had placed before them. Pastor Gunnar wasted no time getting involved in the community and took advantage of every opportunity to serve. Following his service in the Navy, he earned a B.A. in Biblical Studies and a master’s of Divinity from Southern California Seminary. He has also completed doctoral work at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is currently writing his first book: “SEAL Pastor—One Man’s Journey Reconciling Faith and Force,” which is scheduled to be completed later this year. Gunnar and Anna have been married since 2002. They are the proud and happy parents of four children, Grace, Elizabeth, Gideon and Titus. Chairman’s Banquet Entertainment Larry Miller, Hollywood Comedian He had them rolling with laughter during the 2007 and 2011 ARTBA National Conventions. Now, he’s back for another comedic performance at the September 9 Chairman’s Banquet. As one of Hollywood’s most recognizable faces, Larry Miller has appeared in over 50 films and hundreds of television shows. He began his career with a memorable scene alongside Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in the blockbuster film “Pretty Woman.” He has since gone on to unforgettable roles in such films as “The Princess Diaries” and “The Nutty Professor.” His numerous television credits include the hit shows such as “Medium,” “Burn Notice, “Law & Order” and “Seinfeld.” He’s made dozens of appearances on “The Tonight Show” and “The Late Show with David Letterman.” 12 2014 ARTBA National Convention

  31. 31. Funding? How will highways be paid for in the future? Project delivery and financing options continue to emerge. As do insurance options. ARTBA has engaged Marsh to bring its contractors division members an exciting new group captive insurance option, offering contractors favorable pricing, less price volatility, and greater control over their casualty insurance program. What’s more, under this Marsh/ARTBA program, members create a competitive advantage by making insurance a potential source of revenue since the majority of premiums paid are eligible for a dividend in future years based on favorable loss history.

  48. 48. 2014-15 ARTBA Chairman Nick Ivanoff Nick Ivanoff is president and CEO of Ammann & Whitney. The venerable engineering firm headquartered in New York City is most renowned for its design of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and the landmark TWA terminal at JFK Airport. From its offices located along the eastern seaboard, Ammann & Whitney serves a diverse domestic and international client base with a comprehensive suite of engineering and architectural design services. A dynamic and creative leader, Nick drives strategy and development for his international organization. He spearheads innovation within the firm to both better serve his clients and provide an enhanced workplace for Ammann & Whitney employees. Regarding the company, Nick says: “We’re one of a small, elite group of firms focused on complex structural engineering. The more complex the job, the better off an owner is with Ammann & Whitney.” That 80 percent of the firm’s work comes from repeat clients is testament to Nick’s unwavering emphasis on premier quality design and unmitigated owner satisfaction. With a 38‐year career dedicated to transportation, Nick’s commitment to the betterment of the nation’s infrastructure has led to active engagement in the transportation design and construction community beyond his executive role at Ammann & Whitney. Most notably, he has a long and active history with the American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA), culminating with his election as chairman in September 2014. Previous ARTBA leadership roles include serving as: senior vice chairman, first vice chairman, Northeastern Region vice chairman, two‐term president of the International Affairs Advisory Council chairman, Trans2020 Task Force co-chair, and two‐term president of the Planning & Design (P&D) Division. Nick’s service to ARTBA was recognized with the 2005 “Guy Kelcey Award,” which recognizes outstanding leadership to the P&D Division. Nick works closely with the Society of Military Engineers (SAME) NYC Post. He is a board member and vice chair of the Scholarship Dinner‐Dance Committee. He has held a variety of other capacities with the Post since 1997. Nick is also a long‐standing member in several other industry organizations. These include the Institute of Transportation Engineer (ITE) since 1977, American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) since 1982, and Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) since 1997. Another core focus for Nick is developing future leaders, particularly those coming from technical backgrounds. Since 2001, he has served on the Industry Advisory Board to the Polytechnic Institute of New York University’s (formerly his alma mater Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn) civil engineering department. The Advisory Board focuses on helping to advance both the curriculum and faculty in order to develop premier‐class graduates and future industry leaders. Nick’s greatest personal passion is sailing. He cruises the northeast coast in his Valiant ’42, “Silver Lining,” and enjoys bareboat chartering in waters farther afield. He is an avid traveler and is a transportation enthusiast wherever he goes. Nick can often be found photographing structures, seeking out and using alternate modes of travel and generally exploring the built environment around him. Nick is a graduate of Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn and holds a B.S. in civil engineering and M.S. in traffic engineering and transportation planning. He is a registered professional engineer in 21 states. Nick lives in New Jersey with his wife, Robin. President & CEO Ammann & Whitney 48 2014 ARTBA National Convention
