"The MPWI was a privilege to attend and meet knowledgeable
professionals. It covered 90 different topics of best practices
achieved through lessons learned in public services. The instructors
from supervisors to city mangers displayed a real interest in the
development of those participating."

"The Mid-Atlantic Public Works Institute has helped me tremendously.
I have attended management and leadership training in other formats
before but being taught by local industry experts, like with MPWI, it
made the information more absorbable because of its relevance to my
position in Public Works. Since attending the training, I feel more
qualified and confident handling challenges supervisors face like
personnel issues or budgetary restraints. In addition to the classroom
instruction, the contacts I have made while attending each session have
proven to be invaluable. I would recommend the Mid-Atlantic Public
Works Institute for any supervisor at any level who wants to hone their
skills as a leader."
- Jack Reed, Smithfield, VA
"PWI has been an invaluable professional and personal experience.
The educational curriculum allowed for cross-organizational
communication specific to public works and public service amongst

ability to attract facilitators who are not only experts in their
field but are committed to the continued success of the

"The MPWI turned out to be so much more than advertised – in terms
of material covered, networking with peers, and colleagues from
across the Mid-Atlantic Region that I am proud to call friends.
From the very first session onward I have called and been called by
my classmates regarding any number of unique opportunities that
presented themselves. No longer do I feel as though I work in a
small municipality, I feel as though the entire Mid-Atlantic
Chapter will do anything in their power to help and lend expertise,
as will I. I recommend the MPWI without reservation!"
