As volunteers and experts in the diverse transportation fields, the Transportation Committee provides APWA members with resources for developing and exchanging ideas, knowledge, and innovative technologies. The committee members develop and advocate environmentally sound, sustainable, cost effective, and safe systems that enhance the livability and quality of life in our communities. Our committee members can also be called on to work with local, state, and national political entities when needed.
The Transportation Committee has four subcommittees that are open for membership at any time. If you are interested in joining one of the following subcommittees, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
