"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much" - Helen Keller


The best way to maximize the benefits of being an AWWA member is to GET INVOLVED. Below are ways to step up your involvement in a leadership capacity.

Section Leadership Opportunities
 Association Leadership Opportunities

Section Trustee
Trustees are voting members of the Section Board; Trustees may, but do not have to, advance to the Vice-Chair and Chair positions. Trustees attend Board meetings (approx 10 per year)

What's in a Name?

Association=Denver HQ and staff

Sections = there are 43 local Sections of AWWA, including ours  here in New Jersey

Sections + Association = ONE AWWA

Assistant Secretary-Treasurer
This is a non-voting position on the Section Board. The Assistant Secretary-Treasurer supports the efforts of the Secretary-Treasurer, with the intention of advancing to that position after 1-2 years.

AWWA Director at Large
There are three (3) Directors at Large on the AWWA Board.  Like Section Director, this is a 3-year term.

In 2016, NJ Section member Lindsey Olson was elected to this office!  Lindsey will serve on the AWWA Board through June 2019.


The Director is a voting member of the Section Board, as well as a voting member of the Association Board. The Director liaises between the Section and Association, and serves in this position for a 3-year term.


Cheers! from the Staff at Association Headquarters in Denver

Committee Chair
Being a Committee Chair is usually the first step members take in a leadership role at the Section level. Committee Chairs are responsible for managing their committee's budget, and motivating their committee members in order to achieve the tasks assigned to them as per the Section's strategic plan.

AWWA Committees & Councils

There are also many opportunities to get involved in councils and committees on a national/international level.
