WHO WE ARE
Young professionals (YPs) are generally considered to be members or prospective members under 35 years of age, or with less than 10 years experience in the water industry. YP members include those working for utilities, regulatory agencies, consulting firms, manufacturers, distributors, or academic institutions.
To develop programs of interest to YPs in the drinking water industry, to promote the benefits of membership in AWWA by increasing opportunites for participation and career development, and to encourage younger industry members to take an active leadership role in the association.
Several YP functions are being planned for the 2017 Annual Conference at the Grand Hotel & Resort on the Mobile Bay at Point Clear, AL. The YP Committee is in the planning process for several networking ‘socials’ in select cities for all Section Members and Operators.
WHY GET INVOLVED?
Young professionals represent a dynamic and energetic, yet underrepresented, group of members in AWWA. As the membership ages, it is critical that the involvement of young water industry professionals increase in the activities of the association.
