Hanley Wood’s PUBLIC WORKS Magazine Names the 2004 Trendsetters


WASHINGTON, DC -- 11/10/2004 -- For the first time, PUBLIC WORKS magazine will announce its “2004 Trendsetters” in the November cover story featuring the most influential, high impact people in the public works business.

The 2004 Trendsetters list, which recognizes top leaders in the public works community, includes those who have defined policy, brought their community or an issue into the spotlight, or set the standard within the industry. Those on the list are leading the way among today’s public works officials. Trendsetters could be a single person or an entire organization, self-nominated, nominated by their peers, or selected by the editors.

“We looked for professionals who stand out among their peers by making a national or international impact on the public works sector thereby influencing the way we do our jobs on a daily basis,” said Bill Palmer, the editor in chief of PUBLIC WORKS magazine. “Each person or company selected will be recognized in the November issue with an announcement of their contribution to the public works community.” Like the Time Magazine Person of the Year Awards, the Trendsetter recognition can go to professionals who have made a positive or negative impact on the public works industry.
