AWWA to upgrade Utility and Service Provider Member benefits in 2017


Starting in 2017, AWWA will enhance membership benefits for Utility and Service Provider Members. These changes provide more tangible value to members in a simplified package. “Members will experience the value they have come to expect, but packaged in a way that reduces confusion while creating more opportunity for involvement.” says AWWA Chief Membership Officer Susan Franceschi.


Specifically, AWWA will replace its current benefit system, Plus Points, with a package of benefits that maximizes the value of the former offering. This change affects Service Provider and Utility members with over 5,000 service connections.


“In the past, these organizations had to choose between receiving two key benefits: AWWA Standards and Individual Membership for employees. Now they will get both!” says AWWA Senior Manager of Membership Melanie Penoyar. The benefits package is scaled to the size of an organization, allowing for an AWWA Standards license and a guaranteed number of Individual Memberships.


Utilities with less than 5,000 service connections will experience the upgrade differently. A low dues rate along with an enhanced version of Let’s Talk Safety 2017 will be provided. In addition, free training opportunities may exist for those servicing populations of 10,000 or less.


These changes are a direct result of feedback from member surveys and interviews, collaboration with Sections, and recommendations from volunteer groups.


All organizational members benefit from a robust suite of special communications, tools and discounts for all employees.
