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.
