Join us at noon on June 15, 2021, as the National Capital Section (NCS) reveals the grades for D.C.’s infrastructure. This event is free to attend for all members, nonmembers, and students.
Infrastructure serves as the backbone of our economy and quality of life. The Report Card gives you facts and grades on D.C.’s core infrastructure. The Report Card shows how it all stacks up – from roads to water to levees. It helps you engage with policy makers to help them with information necessary to take the big steps needed to prioritize infrastructure investments.

- WELCOME by Mike Venezia, Section President
- OPENING REMARKS by Christian Manalo, Committee Vice Chair
- GRADES REVEALED by Ranjit Sahai, Committee Chair
- RECOMMENDATIONS by Hari Aamidala, Team Leader for Bridges and Roads
