Steering Committee
Steering Committee 2017 PDF Print E-mail

The MdQI Steering Committee, comprised of a diverse group of highway industry professionals, was originally established to organize and present the annual MdQI conference.

The Steering Committee recognized that the conference was only one way of advocating quality as a way of doing business throughout the industry. As a result, the Steering Committee broadened its initial mission to include fostering ongoing dialogue among members of the highway industry. Today, the Steering Committee provides overall leadership and management of MdQI subcommittees, activities and programs.

The MDOT-State Highway Administration’s Deputy Administrator/Chief Engineer for Operations is one of the co-chairs of the committee; the other co-chair is a transportation executive selected from the private sector.

The committee meets monthly to facilitate productive public-private sector relationships and oversee activities sponsored by MdQI.
