Iowa Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) Director Keith Knapp got a pleasant surprise at the end of the Iowa County Engineers Association (ICEA) Annual Meeting in December when it was announced he received the organization’s Special Service Award.

“It was nice after a long day of running during the conference,” Knapp said.

The ICEA’s Special Service Award is given to one to two individuals each year in recognition of their many contributions to the engineering profession and their continuing effort to bring credit to the field of county engineering. It honors those who have made contributions to ICEA, all county engineers, and the county engineering profession nationwide.

Knapp, who has led the Iowa LTAP for over a decade and has about 30 years of experience in transportation safety and design, was recognized for all the work that he and the Iowa LTAP team have done, particularly the more recent efforts to hold virtual events and send out a resource newsletter during the pandemic.

Additionally, the award recognized Knapp for all his help with the ICEA events, including aiding with determining topics, selecting speakers, and behind-the-science work that help make the events so successful.
