The Water Quality Association’s newest award is designed to underscore WQA’s commitment to improving the lives of others through the betterment of water quality. The award honors those member companies that demonstrate excellence when it comes to customer service, business operations, community service, and innovation.
And so, this new award is called the WQA Excellence Award.
It is unique from our other awards because the honor goes to an entire company, not to an individual. It will highlight the outstanding accomplishments these members companies have made to the water treatment industry and the communities in which they operate.
Starting at the 2018 WQA Convention, the award will be presented each year in two categories:
Unlike other WQA awards, companies must apply for consideration. Only they truly know their own operations and the contributions they have made in the following areas:
Innovation: New products, new services, cutting costs or improving customer service and responsiveness.
Community Impact: Local volunteerism, new programs, partnerships with other community organizations or fundraising.
Minimum criteria: Applicants must be a WQA member for at least three years, sell or manufacture certified products and have at least one certified professional on staff.
