WQA Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers power WQA and the industry’s initiatives. WQA offers a variety of ways for you to get involved, from short-term projects to standing committee, council, and board service. With every new volunteer, WQA grows more energized, more diverse and inclusive, and better equipped to reach our common goals.

We encourage you to deepen your engagement with WQA and with your water treatment peers. Volunteer today!
 

Short-term Commitments

Throughout the year, WQA posts current volunteer opportunities on the volunteer web page. This is a great way to find ways to get involved that fit your interests and the time you have available.

Cross-Correlation Task Force

Time Commitment: Task Force members are expected to participate in scheduled conference calls and face-to-face meetings at annual conferences as needed throughout 2022 and early 2023. One-hour meetings are expected around once per month until work is completed. Regular status updates will be presented to the Industry Research Committee.

Description: This task force is being asked to cross-correlate market trends data for the water treatment industry, such as the Consumer Opinion Study, Tank and Valve Report, and relevant external market trends reports. No experience in market research is needed. More information can be found in the narrative linked here.

Member Committees and Advisory Councils

When you want to take your participation to the next level, consider volunteering for one of WQA’s committees or advisory councils.

How to Participate:
Applications to become a voting member or non-voting member are generally accepted every winter. You can become an observer at any time by contacting the committee or council chairperson or staff liaison.

Member Sections

WQA Sections are open to all WQA members to participate. Typically convening twice, a year, Sections offer members additional opportunities to meet with peers to provide input and share their expertise. Sections refer issues for attention to the WQA Board of Governors and staff and provide semi-annual reports to the Board of Governors.
