National Public Works Week

National Public Works Week is May 17-23!

The American Public Works Association is proud to announce "The Rhythm of Public Works" as the theme for the 2020 National Public Works Week poster. This year's exciting poster challenges our members and their citizens to think about their communities as a symphony of essential services, working in concert to create a great place to live. Every community has a rhythm, a heartbeat that reflects its essence and tempo of life.
