National Public Works Week—May 15–21—is in its 45th year of celebrating the hard work and dedication of public works professionals throughout North America. The American Public Works Association has created an online “how-to” guide, providing public works personnel with a wealth of information to develop activities for their own celebrations. The material can be customized to the needs of different organizations and communities.
In addition, the 2005 National Public Works Week Poster—showing the ever-present benefit of public works in daily life—is available. For more information, to receive a poster, or obtain the association's outreach and recognition products, visit www.apwa.net or call 800-848-2792.
