Leadership and Management Committee

Committee's Mission: To advance public works professionalism through research, application and advocacy of innovative leadership and best management practices.

The public works profession is ever evolving; as exemplified by the fact that many of our agencies are finally being recognized as “first responders” and with that come even more responsibilities; we are being tasked to provide more with less; and the realization of looming retirements and the need to capture as much of that knowledge before it leaves.  These are just a few of the challenges that lay ahead for public works professionals.

The Committee fulfills its mission by utilizing a network of APWA chapter liaisons, the LM Knowledge Team, and other knowledge sources to provide leadership and management resources you'll find in the APWA Store, the Members' Library, the APWA Reporter magazine, the Resource Center area, the Click Listen and Learn programs and sessions at APWA national conferences.
