A year-long national program, the Emerging Leaders Academy provides intensive leadership and management training within the context of public works. It encourages professional growth through a strong network of peers, and offers an in-depth introduction to APWA at the national, chapter and branch levels.
The candidates must be professionals who have been working in the field of public works for ten years or less and those who have demonstrated an interest in advancing their careers within the profession.
“The APWA Emerging Leaders Academy provided a wealth of great information, and gave us the opportunity to network with other public works professionals from around the country. Overall, I believe the information we gained will help guide all who participated throughout their careers in public works."
-Jason Calbert, Assistant Administrator, Street Division, Newport News, VA
