AWC participates in APWA conference

AWC Government Relations Advocate Jane Wall provided a legislative update and delivered tips on legislative advocacy to attendees of the fall 2017 Washington Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) conference in Richland, WA. Jane participated on panels with Washington State Department of Transportation Local Program’s Director Kathleen Davis, Transportation Improvement Board Executive Director Ashley Probart, City of Olympia Public Works Project Manager Jim Rioux, and lobbyist Michael Shaw.

The fall conference is one of two that APWA hosts each year. The spring of 2018 conference will take place in Vancouver, WA.

APWA is an international educational and professional association of public agencies, private sector companies, and individuals dedicated to providing high quality public works goods and services. Originally chartered in 1937, APWA is the largest and oldest organization of its kind in the world, with headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, an office in Washington, D.C., and 67 chapters throughout North America. APWA provides a forum in which public works professionals can exchange ideas, improve professional competency, increase the performance of their agencies and companies, and bring important public works-related topics to public attention in local, state and federal arenas.

Washington’s chapter was founded in 1955 and currently serves roughly 1,400 members.
