The call for presentations for Oregon APWA Fall Conference is open! Please consider submitting a proposal for the Fall Conference planned for October 15 – 18 in Pendleton.
The deadline to submit abstracts for technical session presentations is June 10, 2024, by the end of the day.
To provide a diverse conference program, we are targeting approximately two (2) to four (4) sessions from each of the following categories:
  • Emergency Management
  • Leadership and Management (Including communications and public engagement)
  • Public Works Technology
  • Sustainability
  • Transportation
  • Water Resources
  • Water / Wastewater
  • Operations & Maintenance
As in previous years, we collect our submissions via a Google form. Please submit your speaker and topic information at: You may also access the submittal process through the Oregon APWA events page via

The form requests session title, session description, and basic speaker details such as name, title, agency and email. These details allow the planning committee to select a diversity of sessions as well as avoid conflicts in scheduling selected sessions.

Once the June 10 deadline has passed, the submissions will be reviewed by the Chapter committees, and you will be notified of the acceptance of your abstract about a month later.
Don’t be shy in providing more than one presentation, it is great to have a variety of topics to consider.
