Members of the 2017 - 2018 Board of Trustees


Leadership Development

Do you have aspirations to serve on the NC AWWA-WEA Board of Trustees? Then you may be interested in the NC AWWA-WEA Leadership Development Program!


This new program provides a structured approach to facilitate member development for leadership roles within NC AWWA-WEA, sustain strong leadership of NC AWWA-WEA, and expand networking opportunities for participants. The program is focused on identifying those members who are already exhibiting leadership potential through higher levels of activity within NC AWWA-WEA, such as serving as a current or past chair or vice-chair (officer) of a NC AWWA-WEA committee. Through one on one interaction with their mentor and attending NC AWWA-WEA functions together, mentees gain a greater understanding of the history and structure of NC AWWA-WEA leadership, how the Board of Trustees operates and makes decisions, and what it means to be a leader in NC AWWA-WEA. Mentors are all established leaders of NC AWWA-WEA who have served on the State Board of Trustees at least once. Learn more about the Leadership Development
