Every year National Public Works Week gets bigger and better. The number of participating municipalities continues to grow, which means the number of citizens who are exposed to the value of public works grows. At APWA one of our main goals is to educate the general public about the value and necessities of public works projects throughout North America, and public works professionals like you are our best ambassadors.
Since 1960, APWA has sponsored National Public Works Week. Across North America, our more than 29,000 members in the U.S. and Canada use this week to energize and educate the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives: planning, building, managing and operating at the heart of their local communities to improve everyday quality of life.
APWA encourages public works agencies and professionals to take the opportunity to make their stories known in their communities. The National Public Works Week How-To Guide is one of several resources the Association makes available to agencies to assist them in the development and implementation of their own individual celebrations. The occasion is marked each year with scores of resolutions andproclamations from Mayors, Reeves, and Premiers, as well.
Every proclamation received back to the SPWA by May 20, 2020 will get your municipality entered into the draw in which SPWA is giving one free registration to each of our four quarterly events. *Please note that all our workshops are suspended until social gathering restrictions are lifted.
