As the largest and one of the oldest associations of public works professionals worldwide, APWA is committed to excellence. For over 75 years, our mission has been to support those who operate, improve and maintain public works and infrastructure through advocacy, education & member engagement (APWA’s Mission)in the U.S. and Canada. The Board of Directors continues to implement the Strategic Plan for 2017-2020, which includes four strategic goals: Value - defining and sharing the value of public works to our communities; Voice - being the voice of public works to government and media; Education and Credentialing - focusing on excellence in education and credentialing; and Membership and Chapters - creating a dynamic membership and chapter support model. Below you will find the directory of APWA Board members for 2018-2019; the Board and APWA staff are here to serve, so don’t hesitate to contact any one of them to let us know how we can help.

Thank you for what you do through public works and for "advancing quality of life for all" (APWA's Vision).
