The APWA Chicago Metro typically hosts the annual Expo during National Public Works Week. This two day event is a great way to see the latest equipment, tools, speak with vendors, attend education sessions and watch (or participate in) the end loader, snow plow and backhoe competition. The winner of the backhoe competition gets the opportunity to compete at PWX Atlanta and represent the Chapter.
