The AZAPWA Government Affairs Committee Presents
“Advocacy at the Chapter Level—Get Involved!”
Being “the voice” of public works is a strategic priority for APWA. As the best messengers for public works, APWA Chapters need to advocate for sound public policy. Come learn about the tools and resources APWA National have available for your chapter to utilize in educating policymakers at all levels, as well as the functions and priorities of APWA’s Washington, D.C. office. APWA needs your voice to continue building on our advocacy success. Andrea will also give us an update from a national perspective regarding the proposed Infrastructure Legisation.
Andrea Eales is the Director of Government Affairs for APWA and heads up the Washington, D.C. office. Andrea is originally from Northeast Ohio and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Akron and also a Certificate in Applied Politics from the Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics. Andrea also has a Master’s degree in International Affairs from Georgetown University. Her professional experience includes working on various levels of political campaigns, being a staff member in the U.S. Senate for former Senator Mike DeWine of Ohio, the National Association of Counties (NACo), Georgetown University and just prior to joining APWA, handling Congressional Affairs for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS).
