- Learning Objectives: All proposals must include three (3) learning objectives that indicate exactly how the attendee will benefit from the presentation. Instructions for developing appropriate learning objectives are included on the online form.
- No Sales-pitches Please: Direct promotions of products, services, or monetary self-interest are not appropriate education programs. APWA members are traditionally vocal in their displeasure with programs that appear to be sales presentations or promotions. APWA audiences prefer case studies from the user perspective.
How Are Presentations Selected?
All submissions are reviewed and evaluated by a committee of public works maintenance professionals. The evaluation process is competitive based on these criteria: (1) Relevance and Clarity (learning objectives are clearly stated using active verbs indicating exactly what the benefit would be to the learners); (2) Practical Application (presentation provides take-away knowledge material that can used by the learners in their day-to-day work settings); (3) Leading-edge (presentation addresses critical issues, emerging trends, innovative methods and technologies.)
