It is my honor and privilege to represent the Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Public Works Association. Our Chapter is over 120 members strong and growing, in the coming years, we hope to increase the number of people involved in the Chapter activities.
APWA is dedicated to being a comprehensive resource for improvement for all Public Works employees. As a Chapter, we try to serve our members by promoting our profession and improving public awareness through an exchange of knowledge through our Chapter activities. Chapter activities typically revolve around the education of our members on issues that we deal with on a regular basis. Our Chapter holds monthly meetings which include occasional guest speakers, as well as, round-table discussions. APWA being the largest and oldest organization of its kind in the world provides many tools to help you perform your job more efficiently. Many of our members participate in an APWA INFONOW community, which is an e-mail based tool, which allows you to solicit views from around the country on any topic that may be of interest. There are also multitudes of publications, Regional Workshops and WEB based workshops to utilize. However, the Chapter meetings and functions are the best value your membership delivers. I invite you to attend one of YOUR Chapters next events. They are very close to where you live or work.
I would like to thank the Past-Presidents and Board members for their leadership in making our Chapter what it is today. In addition, I would like to thank the current Chapter Leaders for their interest and dedication in continuing the improvement of our Chapter.
