What We Do


The American Public Works Association (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.

The Florida Chapter provides financial support to the education endeavors through scholarships to students and members of public work agencies.

The educational programs held by each Branch of the Florida Chapter of APWA relate to improvements or projects completed within the area covered by each particular Branch.  Branch activites provide a forum allowing professionals to share on-the job experiences and discuss local topics of concern.  Branch programs also provide an opportunity for area vendors to show case product and services through meeting sponsorship or speaking engagements.

A significant benefit of the Branch meetings is the networking opportunity.  The meetings promote networking of public and private sector professionals allowing members and attendees to receive valuable and useful information about local projects, products and services.
