Your Section Board is holding its annual budget meeting October 12 in Coeur d'Alene. In advance of this meeting they have posted their proposed 2019 budget on our website along with a letter from Section Chair Mel Damewood.

TRI-STATE WUC MEETING - Registration Is Now Open!

Everyone is invited to attend this year's Tri-State Water Utilities Council (Tri-WUC) meeting which is being held at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, Washington. As in past years AWWA Legislative staff from the Washington DC Office will be joining us. The meeting will cover legislative, legal, and local updates from Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. There is no charge for the event but attendees are asked to register in advance. 
SECTION BALLOTS HIT THE MAIL - Members to Vote for Trustees
The fall season is upon us which means it is election time of year! 

All AWWA members have an opportunity to help select our Section's leadership by voting in the Section election November through December this year. 

All members will receive an email invitation to vote via electronic ballot in early November. Members will be asked to enter their Elector ID (email) and Password (last name) which will be verified against the AWWA member database. You will only be allowed to vote once. 

Look for candidate bios in this Fall Water Matters which you will receive in the next few weeks.
