The Young Professionals Committee works to encourage the active participation of the younger members of VWEA and VA AWWA. The committee plans events that are open to everyone but are designed to draw interest and encourage active participation in the Associations. Through the work of the committee, the younger members from both organizations are provided with networking, leadership, mentorship, educational, and community service opportunities. The committee also works with the Membership Committee to help recruit members into both VWEA and VA AWWA by promoting the benefits of membership.
