LISLE, Ill. – The Water Quality Association (WQA) is designating November as Member Appreciation Month, letting members know how much the Association values their involvement and contributions in making a positive impact for the Water Treatment Industry. It’s also another opportunity to demonstrate WQA’s WE CARE focus on customer service and responsiveness.

 The Water Quality Association has more than 2,500 company members worldwide, including approximately 600 manufacturing/supplier companies, 1,700 dealers and 200 allied members.

“WQA members benefit from the combined resources, talent, knowledge and expertise of the association,” said Deputy Executive Director Pauli Undesser. “We’re proud to offer technical resources, product certification and professional certification so that WQA remains the leading voice of the water treatment industry.”

WQA staff are working to benefit members across a broad spectrum of services. The Government Affairs Team is keeping an eye on legislation and regulatory affairs. The Technical Affairs department is on top of research members need to know. WQA’s training and professional certification gives members a unique advantage in the marketplace. Product certification boosts credibility with regulators and consumers, and planning continues to make sure the 2017 WQA Convention & Exhibition gives members a chance to connect and succeed.

WQA is always looking for new members to join with their colleagues in an effort to bring effective water quality solutions to people everywhere. For questions regarding membership, please contact the membership department at 630-505-0160 or
