We already know how valuable these meetings are – they are essentially free mini- conferences! We strongly encourage you to extend this learning opportunity to your younger team members. Bring them along and they can meet everyone, learn something new and even have the opportunity to present at future sessions. Together we can build the next generation of public works professionals.
