APWA is proud to announce the theme "Ready & Resilient" for the 2022 National Public Works Week. Within every public works professional lies a superhero, which is dramatically represented in this year's poster. Public works professionals are always READY to serve their communities and RESILIENT as ever in their abilities to pick themselves up off the ground after encountering challenges.
The "Ready & Resilient" theme highlights the ability of these professionals to perform regular public works duties and be ready at a moment's notice to react as first responders during natural disasters and overcome trials seen in the field.
Public works superheroes help keep communities strong by providing an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, stormwater, wastewater treatment, public buildings and spaces, parks and grounds, emergency management and first response, solid waste, and right-of-way management. They are what make our communities great places to live and work. So join us in celebrating these superheroes!
