The APWA Florida Chapter was founded in 1960, with their inaugural meeting held in Orlando.

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 Florida Chapter of American Public Works Association (APWA) is an international non-profit educational and professional association of public agencies, private sector companies, educational institutes, and individuals dedicated to providing high quality public works training and services.

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

The educational workshops held by each Branch of the Florida Chapter of APWA relate to products and procedures involving improvements or projects completed within the area covered by each particular Branch. Branch activities provide a forum allowing members and non-members 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.
