Each year the Membership Committee runs a Member Drive where recruiters and sponsored new members are entered into a drawing for some great prizes donated by our sponsors and supporters.

Already a member? Get recruiting! Think about how you first got involved or became a NEWWA member—more likely than not someone just simply asked you. Why not do the same and continue the cycle? And in the process, you can be entered to win great prizes! Simply list yourself as a "referring member" on your recruit’s membership form.

Theme for 2023: "Cast Away Your Doubts"

Prizes are awarded each year at NEWWA’s December Membership Meeting. Good luck and get recruiting!





Most of us have been there—we’re new to the profession, new to the association, and know little to few people. Walking into a reception, event, or even course can be very intimidating, especially when you look around at all the different groups laughing and talking together. You may wonder: “how can I fit in?” and “where do I start?”

15 years ago, NEWWA and its Membership Committee recognized this issue, and from there the Mentoring Program was born. The program, which lasts from 6-12 months, pairs a new member (mentee) with a more “established” member (mentor), to help the new member gain greater knowledge of NEWWA and the profession, and hopefully make a friend in the process.

The program started in 2008 and since then has seen more than 50 mentees complete the program, with 30 mentors assisting along the way. Want to learn more about the association or water profession in general? This 6-12 month program is the way to go. A mentee may begin the program at any time and is allowed 6-12 months to complete it.

There are great opportunities for both new and young members to get involved as a mentee, and even greater opportunities for existing members to become a mentor! If you’re interested in either, please contact the Mentor Program Coordinators:
