The Vice-president and Executive Director of the Ghana Institution of Engineering, Ing. Harold Esseku and Ing. Kwabena Agyei Agyepong made a presentation to the outgoing President, William Spearman and Executive Director Scott Grayson of the American Public Works Association (APWA) at the APWA Annual Conference in Seattle, Washington.
APWA and the GhIE held discussions to further co-operation between the sister organisations. Key among these were to help with professional development where members of the GhIE, especially municipal engineers will be able to undertake webinars and other continuous professional development (CPD) programmes.
Opportunity will be made available for Municipal Engineers to attend future conferences. The main themes of the conference which are very beneficial to the GhIE and Ghana at large are the ongoing discussions on Sustainable Development, Resilience and the Circular Economy and the development of Climate Resilient Cities.
The 2019 APWA conference is from September 8 to 11, 2019 at Washington State Convention Centre in Seattle, Washington.
