Oakwood City Mgr. named National APWA Public Works Leadership Fellow

By Staff
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Oakwood City Manager Stan Brown was recently designated a Public Works Leadership Fellow (PWLF) by the American Public Works Association (APWA).

As a PWLF, Brown will mentor public works professionals enrolled in the APWA Donald C. Stone Center for Leadership Excellence (DCS Center) throughout the year. He is among 200 public works professionals from across North America who were recently inducted as Leadership Fellows (PWLF).

The APWA Donald C. Stone Center's Program Council determines the selection of recipients for the PWLF designation.

"The average age of APWA members in leadership positions is 55 years old. As that group heads toward retirement, there is a critical need to bestow the senior public works leaders' accumulated wisdom on the next generation of leaders. The resulting knowledge transfer will help to position the next generation to better address the issues of the 21st Century," said APWA Executive Director Peter B. King.

Brown has worked in local government service for over 25 years, in various public works and engineering management positions. His areas of expertise include capital project management, transportation engineering, and water/waste water system management. Brown is also a licensed professional engineer in the state of Georgia, and served as a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve.
