Every year railway industry leaders from freight and passenger rail lines present invaluable information and insights at the NRC Annual Conference. NRC members have free access to select conference presentations, which focus on transportation infrastructure spending, operational and contractor/supplier updates, as well as regulatory changes.
Conference attendees were sent a link to access select presentations from the 2020 Annual NRC Conference. If you have questions or require access, contact the NRC.

The NRC Education Grant program gave us the flexibility to fund graduate students engaged in developing railway-themed youth outreach activities, and documenting these activities to share with others. Thanks to the support from NRC, railway museums and kindergarten-through-grade 12 (K-12) educators have a new tool for attracting a diverse new generation of railway engineering and construction professionals, including traditionally under-represented groups.
