For the past 82 years, the American Public Works Association has focused on supporting those who operate, improve and maintain public works and infrastructure through advocacy, education and member engagement (APWA’s Mission) in the U.S. and Canada to help them serve our communities. The entire association 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

Membership and Chapters: creating a dynamic membership and chapter support model.

Below you will find the directory of APWA Board members for 2019-2020. 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 every day for your citizens through public works and for "advancing quality of life for all" (APWA's Vision).
