The American Public Works Association 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 Silicon Valley Chapter was formed in 1970 by splitting from the North Bay chapter, in recognition of the growing importance of the South Bay. Each of APWA's 67 chapters provide localized services to and opportunities for members in a geographic region.
The Silicon Valley Chapter is governed by four officers and a board of directors who plan, organize and manage chapter activities. Educational activities include programs of professional interest at our monthly luncheons, held at Michael's Restaurant, located adjacent to the Shoreline golf course in Mountain View. Our professional activities include engineering students' scholarships, support of legislation consistent with our mission and networking with other public works professionals at regular and joint-sponsorship meetings. We also sponsor social activities including a picnic, golf tournament and tennis tournament to further strengthen this professional networking.
