We All Can Do Something...

By Marcus Thomas, APWA-MN Chapter Diversity Committee

The strength and vitality of APWA's Minnesota Chapter are attributed solely to the dedication and contributions of our members. Not only does a large percentage of our membership participate in chapter committees, event planning, and continuing education support, but we also focus on the external efforts needed to support the ongoing sustainability of our public works and civil engineering professions.

Our Fall Conference served as a reminder to us that we each have an obligation to educate young people about career opportunities and to share the stories of positive impacts that our work has on our daily lives. We heard from Minneapolis Public Schools and Big Brothers Big Sisters about "plug and play" volunteer opportunities that exist for individuals as well as agencies. These are great opportunities that have been described in detail on our website. Go to http://www.apwa-mn.org/membership/education--and--outreach for more information.

In addition, we are looking for volunteers to help staff the APWA-MN exhibit booth and engage 8th-grade students at the upcoming Minneapolis Public Schools STEM Expo scheduled for February 21, 2018, at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Please contact Marcus Thomas (marcusth@bolton-menk.com) for more information regarding this opportunity.
