IWAA Committee 2017-19
The purpose of the IWA Australia (IWAA) committee is to enhance the experience of IWA members in Australia by being the Australian voice internationally and the international voice in Australia. We are supported by the Australian Water Association and are a link between the two partnering Associations.
Our committee is made up of diverse people from around the country, including several YWPs. Our committee members are empowered to shape and take ownership of initiatives that they believe will achieve IWAA’s purpose of enhancing the experience of IWA members in Australia. We have monthly committee calls with subgroups working on committee initiatives between these sessions.
Joining the committee is an incredible opportunity to build relationship with water professionals in Australia and across the globe while contributing to the aspirations held by IWA and AWA.
Over the last 6 months of the 2017-2019 IWAA committee term, the committee set eight initiatives to work towards before the end of the term in June 2019. The initiatives are around communications, budgeting, events, inclusion, membership engagement, a scholarship, and preparing for the next IWAA committee election.
Specifically, the initiatives are:
2. Preparation of IWAA budget for 2019/20
3. Supporting a regional bid for ASPIRE 2023
4. Delivering a Sustainable Development Goals workshop at Ozwater 2019
5. Engagement with members
6. Developing the Emerging Water Leaders Scholarship
7. Review the member election process for new IWAA committee term
