Share |

Arizona Water has five councils in alignment with Arizona Water Association's Strategic Objectives and are as follows: 

  • Advocacy
  • Educate
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Infrastructure
  • Member Involvement

The Board-Council-Committee structure provides the following benefits to our members:

  • Enhances educational, training, networking opportunities, and leadership programs to help water professionals advance their careers.
  • Promotes a sustainable, growing, and diverse workforce
  • Supports appropriate and continued investment in water resources, watersheds, water quality and water infrastructure
  • Helps communicate important water and environmental issues to the public and key stakeholders
  • Provides resources and training designed to help utilities invest and operate efficiently

The Board-Council-Committee structure provides the following committee benefits:

  • Provides member-driven collaboration between committees
  • Facilitates a strong interface between thriving and struggling committees and assists struggling committees
  • Supports delegations and execution of AZ Water initiatives across multiple parties
  • Opens opportunities for ideas and involvement beyond committees and below the Board

Councils are composed of a committee chair person or their delegate and one other committee delegate from each committee or sub-committee, and two AZ Water Board members.  The AZ Water Board members are non-voting members of a council unless they are a committee chair or delegate.

Councils will meet at least once per quarter.  It is intended that they would rotate quarterly meetings at a committee meeting in place of the committee meeting for that month. This gives committee members the chance to see a council in action.   As with the AZ Water Board meeting, council meetings will be open for any AZ Water member to attend. 

Council goals and expectations include:

  • Provide a forum for committee collaboration
  • Set consistent event pricing
  • Enhance AZ Water Strategic Plan implementation Further Business Plan initiative coordination and collaboration
  • Support consistent messaging to committees and membership
  • Facilitate resource sharing opportunities
  • Offer more leadership development opportunities Solicit members to serve on committees and volunteer
  • Pass on “highlights,” critical decisions, committee activity status and summary reports once per month to board liaisons  
  • Pass on “highlights,” critical decisions, committee activity status and summary reports once per month to board liaisons
