Water Industry Associations and Other Useful Links

Associations are typically supported by its membership and serve its membership. Most associations, depending on size, provide continuing education, current news about the industry, certification programs, publications and resources, advocacy and outreach programs, and career information. Many associations, though national, have local or regional chapters.

When conducting a job search, a professional or trade association in the water industry should be a great resource. There are a few things to do through an association that may lead to that next job: check association job listings, get involved in local events and use them for networking, and update skills through certification or education programs.
