Presidents Message

It is a special honor and a privilege to serve as president of the American Public Works Association Western Pennsylvania Chapter. Cathy Trexler, our outgoing president, deserves an enormous thank you from all of us for her leadership during her term.  My hope is to build on her success over the next two years. 


I am excited for the opportunities for our chapter to grow over the next two years.  I hope to bring new ideas to increase membership and enhance networking, training and our annual equipment show. The new leadership and I look forward to working with chapter membership and the public works community to improve our chapter and expand the value that membership in our chapter represents.


My four years as a member of APWA and the Western PA chapter Board has been a wonderful opportunity for me to get to know members, work on a cohesive team, and make some meaningful contributions.  We have had opportunities to work with our regional and national leaders during this time and will continue to work with them to help improve our chapter – work that will make our chapter bigger, stronger and more engaging for every member.


Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
