Change is afoot in the California Central Coast Chapter of APWA, and we are excited to share what we've been up to. On August 13, our Board of Directors and Committee Chairs met to plan the 2019-2020 event schedule and review Chapter best practices. During that meeting, some significant motions were passed and other changes are still in progress.
New Faces in Chapter Leadership
After a year and a half of dedicated leadership, and bringing us the inaugural Equipment Roadeo, Chapter President Dace Morgan is moving on to a new position with Quincy up in the Portland area. She's excited to return to her roots of bridge design. We wish her the best of luck on this new endeavor, and plan to carry the Roadeo torch moving forward. She will be missed!
Aimee Snyder (former President Elect, Stantec) will be the new Chapter President with Julie Sainz (former Communications Chair, Stantec) moving into the President Elect role. Picking up Communications and Social Media, we are excited to welcome Kyle Andersen and Andrea Kingsbury (both from Wallace Group). Also new to the team, we welcome Jennifer Rice (City of SLO) as our new Internship Program Chair.
Because of you, we are receiving not one, but TWO awards at PWX in Seattle (just a couple weeks away!). Our Chapter is receiving the Chapter Membership Achievement Award for a 12% increase in membership in 2018. The third highest of any Chapter in the US or Canada. We are also receiving our 5th consecutivePresidential Award for Chapter Excellence. These are two great honors, and we wouldn't be receiving them without your engagement and participation. Thank you for making our Chapter one of the great ones!
