Advisory Councils

WQA's Advisory Councils play an important role in providing valuable feedback to help WQA move forward on various programs or initiatives. WQA has Advisory Councils for young professionals (RISE), those wanting to foster inclusive industry engagement (THRIVE), and Women in Industry (WIN).

The Councils are effective tools for:

  • Providing feedback on existing programs and services
  • Providing advice on how to prioritize new programs and activities
  • Serving as a resource for WQA staff to evaluate topics, trends and industry data

What We Are Looking For:

  • Engaged WQA members who want to become more involved with the Association and the challenges facing the water quality improvement industry
  • A strong understanding of the water quality improvement industry
  • Individuals with experience with relevant issues

Frequency of Meetings: Twice per year (at WQA Convention & Exposition and Mid-Year Leadership Conference).
