Mr. Bishop's background is in master-planned community development with frequent involvement in infrastructure design and construction projects. Oftentimes his involvement in these projects has lead him get also get involved with public or quasi-public mechanisms that constitute the bulk of transportation infrastructure investment and value capture (VC) strategies making him a great candidate to speak on behalf of transportation components in the building industry.

He will be speaking tomorrow from 11-11:20am about the challenges and opportunities related to value creation and value capture to the Transportation Research Board (TRB). He has been invited as a "Non-Traditional Stakeholder" on the subject of "Value Capture in the Context of (Light Rail) Transit-Oriented Development (TOD): Looking Beyond Price Effects to Value Creation"
