This Committee was formed by the Board of Trustees in August 2013 to develop and maintain relationships with elected officials, and makes recommendations to the Board of Directors regarding policy issues. The following subcommittees were designated under the umbrella of the Government Affairs Committee: Legislative Planning, Local Government, Regulatory Affairs, and Coordination.
The AWBD Membership Committee monitors all aspects of membership, including recruitment, retention, engagement, and education. The committee brings in new members, teaches them about AWBD and then ensures that the member experience meets everyone’s expectations. The Membership Committee develops new member prospect lists and recruitment opportunities by reaching out to non-member MUDs and special districts as well as to industry consultants and vendors. The Membership Committee is made up of four subcommittees focusing on Outreach and Engagement, Emerging Leaders, Recognition and Awards, and the industry’s Water Smart Program.
