APWA calls for presentations for international congress
Sept. 30 is the deadline for submitting education session ideas to the Kansas City, Mo.-based American Public Works Association (APWA) for next year’s International Congress and Exposition. The congress will be held in New Orleans Aug. 17-20, 2008, and APWA wants to hear from public works professionals on the theme of infrastructure renewal.
The presentations should be about public works meeting a challenge from natural disasters, financial or technological difficulties. They should include lessons learned, “how we did it” case studies, strategies for addressing emerging trends, and practical ways that public works officials can handle critical issues.
Interested agencies can either submit an application directly by going to www.apwa.net, filling out the application form and clicking “Submit,” or they can download the form and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. No faxed or mailed submissions are allowed.
