The American Public Works Association (APWA) is a not-for-profit, professional association of public works agencies, private companies, and individuals dedicated to promoting professional excellence and public awareness through education, advocacy and the exchange of knowledge. APWA is headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, and has an office in Washington, D.C.

Chartered in 1937, APWA is the largest organization of its kind in the world, supporting 63 chapters throughout North America.[1]


The APWA Reporter unites the public works professionals who make up APWA.[2]


Chapters[3] are the essential element in APWA's service delivery system for its members. They offer one of the most immediate, easy and cost-effective opportunities to exchange information with colleagues and to keep up to date on the latest public works technologies and management trends. Organized within nine regions, APWA's 63 chapters are located throughout North America and serve virtually every metropolitan area, state, province and region on the continent.
