  3. 3. 2014 ARTBA National Convention 3 The hotel for this year’s September 7-9 ARTBA National Convention is very special. The picture on the opposite page should be motivating enough for you to register now! Rancho Palos Verdes, the home of Terranea Resort, takes its name from Cañada de Palos Verdes or “canyon of green trees,” and was originally inhabited by the Gabrielino-Tongva Tribe. The Terranea is nestled along one of Southern California’s most scenic and coveted coastlines overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island. It features eight dining experiences, a full-service spa and fitness center, an award-winning golf course and three swimming pools. Beyond the seaside location, the program is also filled with meaningful sessions. The ARTBA government affairs and economics teams will update you on the current situation with the Highway Trust Fund and the reauthorization of MAP-21, and provide a construction market conditions report and an early forecast for 2015. 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 accomplishments 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. The spouses will visit the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, and the world-famous Getty Museum. Finally, we host a September 9 dinner to install 2014-15 Chairman Nick Ivanoff of New York-based Ammann & Whitney. At the event, our old friend and veteran Hollywood comedian Larry Miller, who had us laughing at the 2007 and 2011 conventions, will return for an encore performance. A pristine venue… substantive sessions… and a little taste of Hollywood. All good reasons why we hope you and your spouse or significant other join us this September! Doug Black 2014 ARTBA Chairman CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE The Canyon of Green Trees

  6. 6. 6 2014 ARTBA National Convention 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 Opening Lunch “Leadership & Life Lessons Learned” from a U.S. Navy Seal Gunnar Hanson, Former Navy Seal and 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. He is grateful for the lifelong friends and memories in the SEAL teams as they were used to shape him into the man he is today. FEATURED SPEAKER In May 2007, Gunnar was invited to revitalize Valley Baptist Church in Valley Center, California. After much prayer, Gunnar with the sup- port of his wife, Anna, took a leap of faith and decided to take on the mission God had placed be- fore them. Pastor Gunnar wasted no time getting involved in the community taking advantage of every opportunity to serve. He also volunteers as Escondido Police Department chaplain. Following his service in the Navy, he earned a B.A. in Biblical Stud- ies 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. 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.”
