Southern Branch

September Luncheon Meet and Greet
Prior to our September Luncheon, the Southern Branch Board invited leaders from our local public entities to attend a “meet and greet” in order to promote the benefits of APWA programs to their respective agency and to garner ideas to increase public participation from the entity leaders.  This event was highly successful and we look forward to implementing some of the ideas that were provided.   The Southern Branch would like to thank the attendees for taking the time out of their busy schedules to support the organization and provide such valuable input.
