ACWA’s ten committees provide a powerful forum for ACWA members to engage with peers in their areas of expertise and responsibility, to learn from experts, share best practices, and help shape the future of our industry to achieve shared goals. Some of ACWA’s committees meet regularly, and you can track meetings and agendas on the ACWA calendar. Some of the committees, like the Legal Committee and the Education Committee, don’t meet regularly, but they serve as resources for other ACWA committees and the Board of Directors on an as-needed basis. Committees also identify areas of need for educational and outreach tools, and they set to work to develop resources for members. Some of the committees also help plan and convene educational workshops to support the broader ACWA membership. Finally, some committees, like the Water Quality and Legislative Committees, actively work to advocate on behalf of ACWA members in the public policy arena.
ACWA’s strong leadership in supporting local communities’ wastewater, stormwater and watershed management strategies lies in the volunteer efforts of members who are professional experts and those who can offer time to contribute some of their time on behalf of ACWA members statewide.
