Council: Ad Hoc Service Committees and Taskforces: Ad Hoc Service Committee


Ad Hoc Service Committee



The Ad Hoc Service Committee, or AHSC, for short, is a committee helping to connect our members with effective water related service opportunities. We’ve seen that our members often make large donations of their time and talent when given the right opportunity.


Our goal is to start making pertinent information available to the NC-AWWA community about an array of worthy water focused charities. Information such as the mission and types of work they perform, the geographies they serve, and the types of volunteer opportunities available, which can be seen in the volunteer table. Over time we expect to add even more service organizations to our list.
