Long Time APWA Member Recognized
Debbie Sullivan, past 2017 President was recognized by both National and the WA Chapter for her her long standing service at the Committee Summit. The recognition took place on February 8, 2018 to the surprise of Mrs. Sullivan. She expressed her gratitude for all of the opportunities she had with the WA Chapter and the life-long relationships that were forged. Her new job duties as Director of the City of Olympia will prevent her from attending the 2018 Spring Conference however she will stay as Past President for 2018 only. APWA wishes her well and she will be sorely missed.
"You have all been amazing to work with. I want to thank you for your patience, creativity, and gentle nudges throughout the years. I have so many fond memories and I am truly sad to say ‘good-bye’ to APWA. All future conferences will be compared to the high bar of excellence you’ve set, and what I’ve experienced so far…no one else compares. Keep being the professional association of choice for Public Works professionals. Our communities are better off because of you." - Debbie Sullivan
