WQA Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers power WQA and the industry’s initiatives. WQA offers a variety of ways for you to get involved, from short-term projects to standing committee, council, and board service. With every new volunteer, WQA grows more energized, more diverse and inclusive, and better equipped to reach our common goals.

We encourage you to deepen your engagement with WQA and with your water treatment peers. Volunteer today!

Short-term Commitments

Throughout the year, WQA posts current volunteer opportunities on the volunteer web page. This is a great way to find ways to get involved that fit your interests and the time you have available.

Ethics Communication Plan Task Force

The Ethics Communications Task Force is being formed to help develop a communications plan for WQA’s Code of Ethics over the next three years (2022-2024). This will serve to achieve an important strategic goal within WQA’s three-year Strategic Plan.

The task force will review current resources and messaging about the code of ethics and make suggestions for how these or newly recommended materials can be effectively communicated to members, regulators, legislators and consumers to strengthen the awareness and understanding of the industry’s commitment to sound, ethical practices. More information is available here.

Member Committees and Advisory Councils

When you want to take your participation to the next level, consider volunteering for one of WQA’s committees or advisory councils.

How to Participate:
Applications to become a voting member or non-voting member are generally accepted every winter. You can become an observer at any time by contacting the committee or council chairperson or staff liaison.

Member Sections

WQA Sections are open to all WQA members to participate. Typically convening twice, a year, Sections offer members additional opportunities to meet with peers to provide input and share their expertise. Sections refer issues for attention to the WQA Board of Governors and staff and provide semi-annual reports to the Board of Governors.
