The Vision of NC AWWA-WEA is to be “THE leading educational resource for safe water in NC.”

Committees serve as the heart of the Association carrying out the majority of the work to fulfill this vision.  Various conferences, schools, and seminars are the most obvious end-products of much of our volunteers efforts, but there are many equally valuable activities within the long list of committees. If you do not find the information you need within this Resources pages, please visit the Committee page and investigate what various committees have to offer.
