With more than 100 years of annual meetings to its credit, the American Public Works Assn. (APWA) has renamed the APWA International Public Works Congress and Exposition. The association's annual meeting will be known as PWX, APWA officials announced in Phoenix.
“PWX won’t be just a new package for an old program, there will be significant changes from the Congress we have known,” said Larry Frevert, APWA interim executive director. “PWX will incorporate more technology, will embrace and engage the younger generations in the profession, will cater to all of the learning styles of the five generations, and will be a setting that will encourage cross-generational dialogue, so everyone can learn and benefit. This is an exciting time of change and PWX is a symbol of our recognition of these changes.”
