How does APWA develop Policy and Position Statements?

The process begins with a draft submittal from a Technical Committee, Local Chapter or individual member to APWA Staff.

The draft may also be initiated by the APWA Board, the House of Delegates, or the Government Affairs Committee (GAC).

The GAC has responsibility for reviewing all advocacy-related statements and making recommendations for approval to the Board of Directors. The Board approves all APWA position statements. Position statements are posted on APWA’s Advocacy webpage.

More information about APWA’s policy process is available at APWA Advocacy.
