Specialist Networks

Specialist Networks

A key benefit of your Australian Water Association membership is joining one of our Specialist Networks to ensure you stay updated on the latest information and events in your areas of interest. In these Networks our members meet to share ideas, skills and knowledge with colleagues working across water-related areas at local, state, national and international level. The Networks are driven by committees who engage their members in a variety of activities, including national conferences, state roadshows, workshops, seminars, training, publications, policies, online discussions, informal presentations, and more.
