Chapter Leaders: Look to the future...expand your relationships...expand your leadership horizons...target your chapter's future path.
Don't miss this first-time event designed especially for YOU!
The Best Show in Public Works in San Diego is focusing its attention on: FUTUREWORKS: The Shape of Public Works to come.
As part of the focus on the future, we are designating Tuesday at Congress as Chapter Leaders Target Tuesday—a day for all current members holding leadership positions of any type, and those aspiring to serve in those roles. Participation in the day's events is optional but not to be missed.
Here is a brief synopsis of the day:
Chapter Leaders Breakfast — 7:00-8:15 a.m., Room 7A
We will start promptly at 7:00 a.m. with a breakfast buffet ($15 ticket required). Led by President-elect Dwayne Kalynchuk and David Zach, the futurist keynoter for the day, this session is dedicated to sharing ideas for APWA' s future. You will be informed of strategies for growth planned by the Board of Directors and in turn they will hear from you regarding where your chapters are heading. David Zach will offer some perspectives on how you can help face the challenges of change in your chapter and in your job.
Blueprint for Tomorrow's Public Works! General Session 8:30-9:45 a.m., Ballroom 6
Next follow the crowd to the Tuesday keynote featuring David Zach. Zach's session should prove to be provocative from many perspectives. He considers himself a catalyst to get people thinking deeply about choices, forecasts and probabilities. Don't be shy about coming up to the audience microphone and helping move the concept along.
Chapter Leaders Think Tank — 10:00-11:30 a.m., Room 7A
In lieu of separate roundtables on chapter topics, this forum will be an interactive experience facilitated by several regional directors and volunteer "topic masters." We will kick off discussions with successful case studies from several chapters and open the session up to other great ideas or concerns.
Lunch, Exhibits and Technical Roundtables on Exhibit Floor
Join the rest of the attendees on the exhibit floor for box lunches sponsored by the exhibitors and, if you wish, join the technical roundtables in progress.
In the afternoon, to continue your leadership experience, consider attending the following Educational Sessions:
"Leading the Future - Public Works Administrators as Community Leaders" — 1:00-2:50 p.m. in Room 6D. John Luthy, Ph.D., long-time researcher and advocate for public works issues, will help you strategize how to assume a more meaningful and motivational leadership role in your agency and community.
"Your Personal Leadership Success Formula" — 3:00-4:30 p.m. in Room 6D. Jerry Teplitz, well-known author and speaker, will help you explore your leadership style and how it is affecting the people around you.
What better way to cap off the day but by attending the chapter dinners. There are approximately 30 chapter dinners planned. Some chapters have combined efforts to host a dinner. And, if your particular chapter is not on the slate, you are welcome to join another. Tickets are required in advance for each event. You may purchase them directly from chapter representatives. Visit the Chapter Dinner Reservations Center at the Registration Counter to find out how to contact your chapter representative.
