Greetings and welcome to the APWA’s Washington State Chapter website, maintained by MRSC! As the President of this year’s esteemed chapter, from existing members to first-time site visitors, I invite one and all to peruse the full depth and breadth of our website, find a topic or niche that suits/interests you, and then…………GET INVOLVED!

Echoing TV icon and legend, in true “David Letterman-style”, here’s my personal “Top 10 List of WhyYou Should Get Involved in the APWA’s WA Chapter”:

Mike Clark’s “Top 10 List” - Why You Should Get Involved in the APWA’s WA Chapter!

Be an active member in one or more of our 24 committees—spanning the gamut from technical fields to management issues to the Chapter operations that shape our group.

9. Develop meaningful, long-lasting relationships with more than 1,500 other active and engaged members.

8. Rub elbows with the likes of—two National APWA Directors and some of the WA Chapter’s 27 Top 10 Public Works Leader of the Year recipients, and continue to grow the legacy started by our 5 past National Presidents.

7. Share your knowledge and learn from others so together we can improve the quality of the communities we work and live in, while also being stewards of the natural environment.

6. Connect with the next generation of leaders—be a mentor or coach and spread your expertise to peers and professionals excited to listen and learn!

5. Learn something new and valuable, grow as a person and a professional—attend one of many APWA conferences or training events offered throughout the year.

4. Secure face-time and “positive press” for your agency/firm/company through APWA’s dynamic array of networking opportunities!

3. Get “discovered”—co-lead a committee, make a presentation on any applicable topic in the Operational, Technical, or Management field and show your peers your true talents.

2. Actively advocate—for both legislation and regulation—for the pivotal public works projects and services that affect and shape the state of WA.

1. Enjoy the personal satisfaction of serving your community and peers while helping make APWA WA Chapter one of the best chapters in the entire APWA network!

Leading the charge for the APWA WA Chapter this year, I look forward to connecting with each and every one of you throughout the year, hearing your Public Works success stories, thanking each of you for “getting involved!”, and finding out what your Top reasons are for being an active member of the APWA WA Chapter
