Connect and Lead:  Advancing Your Organization through Effective Communication

The Administrative Management Division Board is excited to invite you to our 2014 Annual Conference from July 30 to August 1. This year, we are focusing on two aspects of public works that touch everyone’s workday, communication and leadership.

In talking with our members, we learned that challenges arise every day surrounding communication, either the lack of quantity or quality. On the other hand, successful communication strategies lead to successful projects and positive interactions with stakeholders. Therefore, we have pulled together the best of the industry in these areas to bring you an exceptional educational experience and a value for 9.5 PDH credits!

The board is also excited about our venue, a first for APWA. We will be holding this year’s conference at the Rizzo Center in Chapel Hill. It is a one-of-a-kind conference center that is dedicated to providing facilities that support innovative thinking and learning. The Rizzo Center has a unique all-inclusive setup that enables attendees the ability to focus on learning and networking while all meals, breaks and late-night Dove Bar cravings are satisfied. Because of this change, our fee structure has also changed slightly. For spouses and children, all meals are included in the registration fee, translating into a great deal for all.

And we can’t forget golf…this year everyone is excited about playing at UNC Finley Golf Course.  Sign up or golf using the entry form on the conference brochure.

As you can see, there is a lot to look forward to! We are excited to see you in Chapel Hill and recommend to book early.
