Chapter Membership Achievement Award winners announced

The American Public Works Association is proud to announce the winners of the 2005 Chapter Membership Achievement Award. Established in January 2005, this award encourages membership growth by honoring the chapters showing the largest net increase in membership, compared to other chapters in their division.

Every APWA chapter in good standing is eligible for consideration. However, the chapter must have submitted its financial reports in accordance with the Rules Governing Chapters and must utilize the APWA National office for administration of membership dues collection.
