In October, Regina Hackett, communications coordinator for the UConn Training and Technical Assistance Center (T2), was honored by the New England chapter of the American Public Works Association with the 2021 Meritorious Service Award.
The Meritorious Service Award acknowledges private enterprise or academic institutions for the important role they play in in providing public works services. This year the New England Chapter recognized Hackett for her efforts in bringing virtual education to the entire New England public works community, through her production of the successful monthly New England Connects webinar series.
The APWA, according to their website, serves professionals in all aspects of public works—a fact that sets it apart from other organizations and makes it an effective voice of public works throughout North America. With a worldwide membership more than 30,000 strong, APWA includes not only personnel from local, county, state/province, and federal agencies, but also private sector personnel who supply products and services to those professionals.
