Nominations Needed for 2021 AwardsBack to News
July 7, 2021
We need YOUR help! The deadline for nominations for the WWOA awards is August 1, and is rapidly approaching. To date we have not received ANY nominations for Regional Operator-of-the-Year, or Newcomer of the Year. Certainly, there are many of your peers that are worthy of nomination, and it does not take a great deal of effort to complete a nomination form. Also remember that the WWOA Board of Directors recently clarified that the “Operator-of-the-Year” award is open to all WWTP workers, including lab and collection system personnel. Please take a few minutes and consider nominating a worthy peer/colleague/co-worker. Recognition is both rewarding and motivational!
2021’s conference will be a grand celebration as award recipients from 2020 will also be invited to be recognized before the membership.
