What can you do with an APWA membership?

Who are APWA members?

They are people in the United States and Canada (and some international professionals too) who handle infrastructure-related issues in:

  • Construction Management
  • Emergency Management
  • Engineering and Technology
  • Facilities
  • Fleet Services
  • Grounds and Urban Forestry
  • Leadership and Management
  • Solid Waste
  • Sustainability
  • Transportation (streets/roads, bridges, signage, and transit)
  • Utility and Public Right-of-Way
  • Water (potable, stormwater, and wastewater)
  • Winter Maintenance

What makes APWA different from other professional associations?

“What I find by being a member of APWA is its ‘one-stop shopping.’ Other associations can specialize in their areas of expertise, which is great, but what APWA does for me is that I can go to one place and find all the information on any topic I need in the very diverse world of public works.” -Brenda Herman, Retired Director of Public Works, City of Hays, KS

How does your membership help others?

Your support helps APWA efforts to champion policies which create livable communities and economic growth on behalf of all levels of government. Eight percent (8%) of APWA's total operating budget is allocated toward advocacy-related programs, including staff salaries. APWA’s public policy objectives are guided by these principles:

  • Support for adequate investment in public infrastructure
  • Respect for local authority
  • Reasonable regulations and protection from unfunded mandates
  • Support for streamlining government oversight
  • Support for sustainability and environmental stewardship
