CPWA Board of Directors

Recognizing that a unified voice for public works is important to CPWA members, the eight-member CPWA Board of Directors advocates for public works at the federal level and promotes infrastructure as one of the economic drivers for the nation. The CPWA Board of Directors also work within their chapters to advocate for CPWA's public policy priorities.

 The CPWA Board of Directors meets monthly to identify public policy and advocacy issues, works in collaboration with other stakeholders to highlight issues of mutual concern, and builds relationships with government agencies and Parliament to provide input on policies and programs affecting public works.
