A message from Venu Gupta, Engineering and Technology Committee Chair, 2012-2013
Welcome to the Website for the APWA Engineering & Technology Technical Committee. We appreciate your interest in our committee and hope that you find this site useful. Through it, you will have access to information on the Committee’s projects and activities, and our annual work plan.
The role of this committee is among the broadest within APWA. The committee provides education and information to help public works agencies understand and utilize cutting edge technology and sound engineering principles.By its very nature, there is little in the realm of the public works profession that does not somehow touch engineering or technology. Accordingly, the greatest challenge we face each year is finding the appropriate focus for our resources and efforts. Due to the broad and overarching nature of the terms “engineering” and “technology,” there can sometimes be a very blurry line between where our responsibilities begin and end relative to the other technical committees. Our hope is to better define our role in the organization and thus improving our place as an informational resource in the public works community at large.
As we work on updating our business plan to reflect the true mission of the Engineering and Technology Committee, we welcome feedback from the members we serve. This committee only exists to serve the needs our membership. Therefore, we welcome comments, input, and suggestions on how we can be your resource of choice in the public works arena.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our page and review the details of the committee. We look forward to being of service to our members, now and in the future.
