​​​GMWEA's Board of Directors

GMWEA seeks self-nominations for our board of directors!

Consider taking a leadership role in Vermont's water quality sector!  We're seeking new directors to replace retiring long-term board members.  It's a great group of people, meetings are businesslike but fun; it's an excellent opportunity to help shape the future of Vermont's water quality policy and workforce.

Left to right: executive director Daniel Hecht; Chris Robinson; Tom DiPIetro, president; Chris Cox, second vice president; Amy Macrellis, secretary; Bob Fischer; Rick Kenney, past president; Steve Crosby; Mike Barsotti, first vice president; Eileen Toomey; Ryan Peebles. Not shown: Wayne Elliott, treasurer.

89 Main St., Suite 4, Montpelier, VT 05602   

Our board of directors is elected by the members at the annual Spring Meeting & Conference.  The board is made up of operators of municipal water, wastewater, and stormwater facilities as well as environmental engineers, public works authorities, and water quality technology professionals.

The board is drawn from the membership, and we encourage members to apply for open seats!

GMWEA maintains five standing committees: Government Affairs, Continuing Education, Public Relations, Membership, and Governance.  For information on committee activities and committee member contact information, click here.
