The American Public Works Association exists to develop and support the people, agencies, and organizations that plan, build, maintain, and improve our communities. Working together, APWA and its membership contribute to a higher and sustainable quality of life.
• Bring together the full spectrum of professionals and practitioners who serve the public through careers in public works.
Just as there remains much to be done in the field of public works, so there is much more to do to support public works professionals and practitioners than any one organization can achieve. As a result, we must carefully prioritize our resources to achieve those goals that APWA is uniquely positioned to meet. Utilizing the wide and varied expertise of our active members and dedicated staff, we will develop and provide programs, products, and services for the benefit of the public works community. We will also partner with other associations and organizations that support public works in order to meet other strategic needs and requirements of our profession, including advocacy, education, and information.
APWA is proud and humbled by the uncommon loyalty and dedication that we demonstrate to each other and to the association. As leaders, volunteers, and staff we are committed to earn their continuing engagement by offering the uncommon service and value that they deserve. Together, we build a great association, and through our service to our members, we make a difference in our communities.
