Mission Statement: APWA-NC’s Young Professionals

Young professionals are the life blood of American Public Works Association’s North Carolina Chapter and its communities. Whether you are new to North Carolina or a native, new to public works or a pro, APWA’s Young Professional North Carolina Chapter (YPNC) can help you connect through events, a newsletter, our partners, and other associated YP organizations.

North Carolina’s Chapter of APWA offers a strong history of rising professionals. With the addition of the YP Committee we will bring support to APWA that will strengthen the evolvement of student, young, rising, and phasing professionals in APWA, our communities, and the region. We aim to provide career guidance, fellowship, and networking opportunities that will continue to grow APWA by promoting a healthy combination of socials, training, volunteer opportunities, regional leadership, resources and the opportunity for mentorship at all levels.
