On November 4, TennSMART will host a virtual member meeting that breaks down research and funding opportunities for Tennessee in the bipartisan infrastructure bill working its way through the U.S. Congress. The event will also feature recent economic development wins that position our state as a leader in transportation innovation.
Because the value of TennSMART’s meetings comes from the exchange of ideas and networking, this event will use Lunchpool. This platform will allow attendees to video chat at virtual tables and move freely from table to table just like in real life.
