The Australian Water Association (AWA) is the national peak water organisation, delivering information, expertise and collaboration for sustainable water management.
Membership is broadly-based and multi-disciplinary, covering the entire water cycle. AWA provides the platform for our water experts, practitioners and businesses to share information, grow expertise and collaborate effectively.
Our membership includes professionals and practitioners working in utilities, science and research, energy and resources, manufacturing and agriculture.
We operate across all Australian States and Territories through an active branch network as well as maintaining extensive international links, including with the International Water Association. AWA’s activities are centred around a comprehensive program of conferences, workshops, publications, industry programs, training courses, networking and b2b opportunities. AWA’s Annual Conference and Exhibition is Australia’s largest water industry event.
At our core we provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and knowledge among people involved in the management of water. Our 19 Specialist networks are coalitions of individual members who work in water related topics of common interest.
We offer a comprehensive range of regular publications in addition to access to the latest water information, and have developed courses aimed at enhancing the knowledge of water industry professionals.
