November 13, 1973:

AASHO’s Policy Committee approves a new name, “American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials,” and a broadened mission and membership to include all forms of transportation. On November 15, George H. Andrews, Director of the Washington State Highways Department, is installed as the first President of AASHTO.

Uh-huh, surrreee. You changed your name because of your new mission statement, not because your previous acronym sounded like the perfect way to pronounce “asshole.”
