About APWA Chapters

Your local chapter is the most immediate, easy, and cost-effective opportunity to connect and network with colleagues and to keep up-to-date on the latest public works technologies and management trends. Chapter membership is included in your annual APWA membership.

APWA’s chapter and branch network is made up of more than 60 chapters and more than 90 branches across North America. Each chapter offers valuable resources and information on their individual websites. Chapter branches support an even more specific geographical area. Branch information can be found under the chapter’s website.
