AWWA announces new member award

AWWA is very pleased to announce a new member award! The Silver Water Drop will recognize the commitment of members who have shown their long-time commitment to the Association, but who are not yet eligible for Life Membership status. The Silver Water Drop will be awarded on the basis of a 30-year cumulative membership in the Association. Awardees will be recognized with a plaque and lapel pin. Similar to the Gold Water Drop and Life Member Awards, the Silver Water Drop Award deserves recognition at your annual conference. The criteria for these awards can be reviewed at

Recent changes to the Life Member category at AWWA have affected the timing of section recognition for Life, Silver, and Gold Water Drop awardees. The timeline for recognition is as follows:

April − AWWA confirms awardee eligibility.

June – Sections notified of eligible awardees.

June – AWWA mails plaques and pins directly to awardees.

July – Sections begin recognition of awardees at annual conferences.

In 2012, sections will be provided with three sample plaques for public recognition of the Life, Silver, and Gold Water Drop awardees. The sample plaques should be used for both presentation and photos at your annual conferences. Be sure to keep these plaques for use at future annual conferences!

Special thanks to to: Susan Franceschi, AWWA Chief Membership Officer
