Subsection Membership Challenge Announced
September 1 - December 31
The challenge is on! PNWS is launching a friendly competition between the Subsections to see who can recruit the most new members from Sept 1 – December 31st, to help PNWS reach our annual recruitment goal of 293 new members in 2022.

The Subsection with the most new or reinstated members over that time will get a free lunch catered for their next Subsection meeting, social or in-person training.

The Membership Engagement and Development Committee (MEDC) will send out monthly updates on the competition on new members in your subsection and how close we are to meeting the PNWS goal. Its time to put your networks to use and invite new members to join the AWWA community! Share the AWWA membership link far and wide, and lets meet our goal!  Join | American Water Works Association (awwa.org)

Questions about the challenge, membership benefits or how to join, contact MEDC Chair Joanie Stultz, or Past Chair, Chris Young.
2022-2023 PNWS Mentorship Program Accepting Applications - Final Days!
Would you like to participate in the PNWS Mentorship Program?
Are you looking for a mentor to talk to about your career or to provide feedback regarding your career path? Do you want to share your experience with others?
As Ronald Reagan said, “Each generation goes further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation.” This is the goal of the PNWS Mentorship Program, to provide a program that allows the sharing of knowledge to help others achieve their goals or to create the path towards their goal.
The fifth year of the PNWS Mentorship program will kick-off this Fall! The program involves a commitment of 5-6 meetings over a period of 6 months. You will meet with your mentor/protégé and develop a relationship with a fellow AWWA member to network and gain invaluable leadership skills. The application is available online, due October 7th, and mentor/protégé pairs will be matched in late October 2022. 
If you are interested in being a Mentor or a Protégé please click the appropriate link below to apply.

If you have questions or want to learn more about the program contact Kyle Wong.
