Activities of FP2 Inc.
There’s a place for you at FP2 Inc.! Please join us in the many activities we undertake year-in, year-out, in the support of pavement preservation programs from coast-to-coast.
First and foremost, FP2 is a political advocate for pavement preservation acceptance, research and adoption at the state, county, municipal and federal agency levels. Find out more on our advocacy for pavement preservation HERE.
FP2 also sponsors key promotional activity events, such as international and national pavement preservation conferences. We support distribution of promotional information to support pavement preservation, such as brochures and the glossy quarterly magazine Pavement Preservation Journal.
FP2 Inc.’s James B. Sorenson Award
We are especially proud of our sponsorship of the James B. Sorenson Award for Excellence in Pavement Preservation.
Jim Sorenson (1949-2009) was senior construction and system preservation engineer, FHWA Office of Asset Management, and he was a great champion of pavement preservation at the national level. The pavement preservation industry had no greater friend and we honor his memory with the Sorenson Award.
Intended to recognize agency pavement preservation, the Sorenson award is usually, but not always, presented to city and county agencies. To nominate an agency, please include a brief write-up of how the agency gained acceptance and support for its pavement preservation program; how long the program has been in existence, any special or unique public awareness actions; press releases; the contact person in the agency; and the person or firm making the nomination.
Criteria to evaluate candidate agencies include: process used to gain acceptance by elected officials, general public, employees, and industry (40 percent); how well the program relates to the theme of The Right Treatment, for the Right Road, at the Right Time (20 percent); tangible improvement in their system (20 percent); techniques used to keep public notified of what is being done and why (10 percent); and uniqueness of program (10 percent).
For more information, or to submit nominations, please contact FP2‘s executive director, Jim Moulthrop, at 7400 Anaqua Drive, Austin, Tex., 78750, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
