SPWA stands for the Saskatchewan Public Works Association. It is an Association of public works officials from municipal agencies across the province as well as companies and suppliers of consulting services, technologies, and equipment used in typical public works areas of responsibility. These areas include road and street maintenance, solid waste collection and disposal, municipal water and wastewater operations, storm water management, transportation, traffic control, fleet maintenance, building and grounds maintenance and other related areas.
The Association strives to promote professionalism in the public works field and provide a network through which members can share and receive useful information. Membership in the association provides an opportunity to meet other public works officials who share common responsibilities and services. The networking and exchange of information can help members improve the efficiency and operations of any local public works department.
Celebrate National Public Works Week, May 18-24, 2014
This is the 54th year of celebration for National Public Works Week (NPWW) in North America. Since its beginning in 1960, agencies, municipalities, and regions have used this week to educate and inform the public about the essential role that public works plays in the quality of their community life. Equally important are promoting the choice of public works as a career choice for the working force of the future and recognizing those whose who currently serve in these crucial public roles.
To celebrate National Public Works Week, the Saskatchewan Public Works Association is hosting the ‘Water Sampling & Analysis - 1.0’ workshop. This 0.6 CEU session is being held on Thursday, May 22, 2014 (during NPWW) at the Ramada Yorkton (SK) Hotel.
Instructors are Randy Hanson, Hach Sales & Service Canada, and Bert Gaudet, ATAP Infrastructure Management Ltd. As an added value, while you are attending the workshop, a Hach certified factory trained Field Service Technician, will be on-site to perform preventative maintenance, repairs and calibrations of your Hach portable instruments.

What makes APWA/CPWA different from other professional associations?
“APWA engages the full spectrum of public works professionals, and they’re all equal stakeholders. I’m a member of other professional organizations but don’t see the rate of return that APWA brings.” — Kurt Corey, Director of Public Works, City of Eugene, OR
“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 Herrman, Director of Public Works (retired), City of Hays, KS
