APWA Board Selects New President-Elect
Kansas City, MO – March 31, 2022 – With just a handful of months to go before a new president heads the American Public Works Association (APWA), the association board has selected a new president-elect, long-time active member Keith Pugh, PE, PWLF. Previous president-elect Dan Hartman had to step down from his role, citing ongoing health issues and his worry that he would not be able to give the role the energy it deserves.
Pugh has been active with APWA for over 20 years, starting with serving on the Engineering and Technology Committee. He’s served on other national committees within APWA as well as been very active in leadership in the North Carolina chapter. He is a Client Success Manager with WithersRavenel in Asheville, North Carolina. He will assume the office of president at the Public Works Expo (PWX) scheduled to be held in Charlotte August 28-31.
“APWA has an excellent process with which to fill vacancies in unfortunate situations. The selection of Keith Pugh as president-elect means APWA will continue to be in good hands,” said APWA President Stan Brown. “His breadth and depth of experience will serve the association well.”
“I am excited to have been chosen to fill the unexpired term of president-elect,” said Pugh. “It is a challenging role and I look forward to diving into it and helping to guide AWPA through the next year of my presidency.”
