Chapter Forum: Starting and Running a Public Works Academy
One of the biggest challenges facing public works agencies today is getting viable candidates interested and ready to do the job.   Many states have found success by collaborating with local community colleges, LTAP T2 Centers, and local PW experts to launch Public Works Academies.   If you are experiencing this challenge, please join us for tips on getting started, challenges along the way, and what they have found successful. Live Webinar: 1- 3 PM Central time (2 - 4 PM Eastern, 12 - 2 PM Mountain, 11 - 1 AM Pacific)
