About APWA Florida Chapter

Who We Are
The APWA Florida Chapter has a diverse multi-faceted membership which includes professionals specializing in emergency management, engineering and technology, facilities and grounds, fleet services, leadership and management, solid waste management, recycling programs, transportation (roadway planning, design and maintenance), utility and right-of-way issues, stormwater management, water resources management, and waste water management.

The Florida Chapter (see district map) of APWA has eleven Branches that include professionals at all levels of almost all the public works agencies in Florida and also private sector companies that provide goods and services to these public agencies.

What We Do
The American Public Works Association (APWA) is an international educational and professional association of public agencies, private sector companies and individuals dedicated to providing high quality public works goods and services.

The Florida Chapter provides financial support to the education endeavors through scholarships to students and members of public work agencies.

The educational programs held by each Branch of the Florida Chapter of APWA relate to improvements or projects completed within the area covered by each particular Branch. Branch activities provide a forum allowing professionals to share on-the job experiences and discuss local topics of concern. Branch programs also provide an opportunity for area vendors to show case product and services through meeting sponsorship or speaking engagements.

A significant benefit of the Branch meetings is the networking opportunity. The meetings promote networking of public and private sector professionals allowing members and attendees to receive valuable and useful information about local projects, products and services.

Print Advantage



There are fewer magazines and print newsletters in the mail, so more attention is paid to each piece.


As social media progresses, online content and iPad applications may be overwhelming. More and more people are attempting to disconnect themselves from digital media, feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume. Many marketers are continuing to leverage print as something of value in their marketing mix.


The printed word is still perceived as more credible to many people than anything on the web.


Distributed directly to membership or subscriber lists that are continually updated, print magazines enable advertisers to effectively reach a current and accurate target audience. There are no mailing list development, maintenance or retention costs for advertisers in these printed publications.
