Sponsorship Opportunities

The success of the conference stems greatly on the financial support received by our many sponsors.  In return, sponsors receive exposure to hundreds of public works specialists.  Conceptual benefits include:

  • Connect with others in the Washington public works industry
  • Illustrate your organization’s expertise in your field
  • Contribute to the education goals of The Chapter
  • Develop new contacts with colleagues and potential clients

APWA offers a variety of sponsorships with a wide range of tangible benefits.  Please refer to each sponsor type below for important deadlines to ensure receipt of all benefits.
