About APWA Government Affairs

One of APWA’s core missions is to be the voice of public works to government leaders throughout the US and Canada.

From creating public policy priorities to encouraging members to actively participate in legislative and regulatory processes, the APWA Government Affairs team is constantly working to grow our relationships with leaders in the US Congress and Canadian Parliament. These relationships are key to allowing governments to recognize and prioritize the importance of public works—especially in our role as first responders.

You can help us achieve our vision of advancing the quality of life for all by sharing your stories and advocating on the local level.
