The 2017 Nomination Book is Now Available!

NC AWWA-WEA members work every day to protect the public health and the environment. NC AWWA-WEA’s awards program is designed to recognize individuals and organizations that go above and beyond expectations. With over 3,000 members across North Carolina, it is difficult for awards committees to know about the great work of every individual and organization.  NC AWWA-WEA’s awards committees depends on members to step forward and nominate co-workers and facilities that deserve recognition.

 

The activities of the various awards committees are organized by an overall Awards Chair. The 2017 Awards Committee Chair is Tom Bach, with the City of Concord. He may be contacted by phone at (704) 920-5344 or by email at bacht@concordnc.gov.

  

The 2017 Awards Nomination Book is now available! Within this document, you will find applications and instructions for all NC AWWA-WEA awards that accept open nominations.  All award applications and nominees’ photos should be submitted electronically to raguie@ncsafewater.org.
