The mission of the Leadership and Management Committee is to advance Public Works professionalism through research, application and advocacy of innovative leadership and best management practices.

A message from Wendy Springborn, Leadership and Management Committee Chair, 2015-2016

It is a pivotal time in the public works profession. Many APWA members are getting closer to retirement, generational gaps are driving organizational change and leadership practices are evolving. In many occupations professionals need only to possess specialized knowledge in a narrow range of subject matter to be considered competent. The APWA understands that public works leaders are not afforded this luxury and must develop multi-dimensional skill sets to be successful.

We want to extend an invitation to any member who is interested in leadership and management to contact us and get involved. We continue to build membership in our L&M Knowledge Team and LinkedIn Group. We are looking for energetic folks like you to join us to help out.

There are tremendous attributes associated with getting the membership engaged. We value your input and would welcome your involvement with the Committee. Do not hesitate to contact any of the committee members or Becky Stein, the committee's staff liaison if you would like to get involved.
