APWA Announces 96 Selected for Public Works Leadership Fellows Program Print E-mail
Written by APWA   
Wednesday, 12 October 2011

Kansas City, MO. – The American Public Works Association (APWA) announced today that 96 public works professionals from across North American were recently inducted as Leadership Fellows into APWA’s Donald C. Stone Center for Leadership Excellence in Public Works.  In a special ceremony at the APWA 2011 International Public Works Congress held in Denver, Colorado, each of    the Public Works Leadership Fellows received the PWLF service designation which recognizes commitment to the public works profession. 

The Leadership Fellows were awarded the PWLF designation because of their accomplishments in public works and contributions they have made to the profession throughout their careers. “Each member of this inaugural group will be linked as a mentor for a full year to people entering the careers program,” said APWA Executive Director Peter B. King.  “All of the Fellows have 20-plus years experience in public works, and they will give at least a half-hour a week to advise public works professionals who want to enhance their careers,” said King.

He noted that the new program builds on APWA chapter leadership institutes to offer a flexible, integrated approach to learning leadership skills, and presents career options for technical and financial specialists who want to move into a management track. “We have an aging population in the public works profession and industry, and we are pleased to offer a new initiative to address workforce challenges throughout North America,” he said.

Named for Donald C. Stone, a pioneer of public administration who founded APWA in 1937, the DCS Center offers “something for everyone” through a progressive system of career paths and academic options: Leadership and Management, Technical Specialty, Public Works Professional, and degree programs.  The Leadership Fellows will provide one-on-one mentoring for aspiring public works leaders enrolled in the Leadership and Management career path.
