Welcome to the Illinois Chapter Web site. Our goal is to provide you information of upcoming events and contacts to assist you in providing service. Later this year we will be undergoing a change to the website that we hope will make it more user friendly.
We are busy completing preparation for this year’s 2013 Annual Chapter Conference in Peoria. This has grown to one of the best conferences in the Midwest and an inexpensive way to acquire your CEU’s.
This year’s Illinois Public Service Institute will be held at Effingham on October 6th through the 11th. Over 300 graduates are convinced it is a valuable training session. We are prepared to have another excellent institute in 2013.
2013 is here and our friends in the Chicago Metro Chapter need volunteers as they host the National APWA Congress. Check out their web site for more information as to how you can help make this Congress event a success.
If you cannot make it to a Chapter meeting, try to get to a Branch meeting. It will allow you to connect with other professional Public Works people in the area and usually has some type of educational program.
As I finish my term as your President, I want to thank all of the members who have volunteered their time to improve the Chapter and Chapter functions. If you would like to volunteer, speak with any of the board members about your area of interest. There are lots of opportunities.
