The Colorado Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) is requesting abstracts for presentation at the 5th Annual Chapter Conference to be held October 29 & 30, 2018. Presentations can vary in length, although there are opportunities for shorter presentations or workshops. You are invited to speak and share your public works experiences.
The theme for the 2018 Conference is THE NEW AGE OF PUBLIC WORKS
Unlike the “New Age” spiritual movement which draws from esoteric, mysterious and obscure traditions from the past, the “New Age” of Public Works is a more forward looking movement. THE NEW AGE OF PUBLIC WORKS is characterized by alternative approaches to age old problems in a holistic and environmentally sound manner. In THE NEW AGE OF PUBLIC WORKS we must view all infrastructure projects as interconnected, mutually dependent systems. For Public Works to be successful in this “New Age”, planning for the future is vital. To effectively plan for the future we need to be mindful of both the small and big picture issues. We would invite you to submit your proposals that highlight THE NEW AGE OF PUBLIC WORKS through your experiences; sharing new and exciting projects, processes and practices that showcase this all-inclusive modern movement.
