May 20th to 26th is National Public Works Week (APWA Legislative Action Alert)

May 20 to 26, is the 58th annual celebration of National Public Works Week (NPWW). Hundreds of events will be held across the United States and Canada during NPWW honoring public works professionals responsible for planning, building, designing, managing and operating the infrastructure that protects and ensures our quality of life.

During NPWW APWA’s Washington D.C. office will be hosting two events on Capitol Hill. On May 22, partnering with the D.C. Department of Public Works, and with support from the House Public Works & Infrastructure Caucus, the Washington D.C. office will host a “Donuts and Trucks” event as was first done in May 2017. On May 23, a “Public Works in Big Cities” breakfast roundtable discussion on Capitol Hill will spotlight public works leaders from 10 U.S. cities with populations of 500,000 or more. The cities being represented on May 23 are: Washington, D.C.; Houston, TX; Baltimore, MD; San Antonio, TX; Phoenix, AZ; Denver, CO; Charlotte, NC; Ft. Worth TX; Memphis, TN; and New York City, NY.
