Government Affairs

Helping to lead the advocacy charge for APWA is the Government Affairs Committee (GAC). Members of the GAC are responsible for identifying, drafting, and promoting APWA’s public policy priorities. In conjunction with APWA’s Board of Directors, membership, and staff, the GAC works diligently to advance APWA’s policy priorities and is the voice of public works to government leaders and the media.
