2017 AWPA Committee Meetings:
Key West, Florida - New Dates TBA
HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE
The Florida Keys sustained a direct impact by Hurricane
Irma, but most of the buildings in Key West weathered the storm
quite well. The greatest challenge facing Key West at this time
is the restoration of water and power services.
For this reason, AWPA has decided to
postpone the meeting and will attempt to schedule the meeting in
Key West at a later date. As soon as the new dates are decided
upon, all registered attendees will be notified by email.

Key West, the southernmost point in the continental U.S., offers
a tropical blend of azure waters, exotic foliage, and four-star
restaurants, with a history of some notorious and notable
figures. Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams made
their homes in Key West, while former president Harry Truman
once wrote: "I've a notion to move the capital to Key West and
just stay." Significant research on marine borers has been
done around the piers of this quaint coastal town. For
more information on what to do in Key West, go to the Key West
Chamber of Commerce website:
