​​​GMWEA's Board of Directors

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

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.
