Join us in sharing the essential work of our state’s utilities with the communities we serve!  The newly reformed Water Awareness and Outreach committee is looking for new members. If you are a public information, education, or outreach professional, this is the committee for you! We work on providing training, networking opportunities, and a statewide communications toolkit for drinking water week. We focus mainly on public information, education, and outreach professionals, but also want to cater to leaders who are still learning about the importance of communication and outreach as part of an organization.
Committee activities include:
  • Networking and educational events held in various locations throughout Virginia
  • Annual WaterJam Workshop and networking event
  • Annual Public Information Awards
  • Social Media management for VA AWWA
  • Creation of Statewide communication toolkits
  • Webinars related to public information, education, and outreach in the water world
The committee meets every second Wednesday of the month at 10 am. If you’re interested in learning more, you can contact the committee Chair, Lilly Meighan at, or request to join the committee on the VA AWWA website.
