The purpose of the technology division is to serve as a focal point for the chapter in areas regarding technology and its uses within the public works profession. Our objectives are to provide educational and networking opportunities for members and prospective members. Through networking, we welcome shared ideas, opinions and suggestions in making better informed decisions regarding the use of technology in our professions. We focus on current and developing technologies, with an emphasis on how technology enhances and serves our communities.
The technology division is currently working on ways to better serve the members of APWA by helping other divisions find speakers to present at one of their conference sessions. Currently we have worked with the AMD Division, Stormwater and the State Conference by setting up a speaker for their conference. We have other areas of technology that we would like to help the other divisions with. Allow the Technology Division to help bring a more diverse technological side to your future conference. Some of the topics we are offering are as follows Disaster preparedness, WO (work order) Management, AVL / RFID technology, ArcGIS Online, Real Time PCR (Pavement Condition Rating) software, Street Level LiDAR mapping and CGIA & other state departments (what can they do for you). The vision of the Technology Division as of now is to better serve each division and APWA members by offering a technological piece that enhances conferences through the use of technology.
