2010 MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL
The Arkansas Water & Wastewater Managers’ Association is ready to begin a new year and a new decade!
It’s time to renew your membership and assess dues for 2010. A form is enclosed to complete and return along with
the proper dues and assessment fees for your water and/or wastewater operation. Remember, each utility may have
only three (3) ACTIVE memberships. The form provides the means to figure system dues and assessments. If you
are responsible for both water and wastewater, you should assess for both systems. In cases where more than one
membership exists in a water or wastewater system, you need only to assess for one membership per system.
• If you have Internet capabilities, it is very important that we have your email address. This is a very
convenient method to notify the membership of key issues as they happen.
• Also, to ensure that you get educational credit from ADH and/or ADEQ, please provide your Operator
Training ID #. It would be best to send a photo copy of your Training ID Card or the back of your Operator
License card with your membership renewal.
• Visit the AWWMA website (www.arkwwma.org) to stay up to date on the latest information about this
organization. You will find information about meetings, conferences, membership and other activities that
AWWMA is planning.
Committee assignments have been made and the committee members are heavily involved in their respective duties.
We hope that you will consider becoming actively involved in our organization and volunteer for a committee for
2010, if you haven’t done so already.
One very important and exciting benefit of being an active member is the AWWMA Scholarship Program, available to
member utility employees and/or their dependents. The organization you represent or are associated with must
have an active utility member to apply. A copy of the program requirements, eligibility process, and the application
will be mailed with the annual meeting registration packet later this year.
Mark your calendars for July 21th through the 24th, 2010. You won’t want to miss our 2010 Annual Conference,
which has been booked at the Inn of the Ozarks, in beautiful Eureka Springs, Arkansas. You may call 1-800-552-
3785, to book a room. Be sure to tell them you are with the Arkansas Water & Wastewater Managers’ Association to
get the special room rates. We are planning spouse/guest events, as well as some exciting speakers, and hope to have
that information to you in late April or early May along with your registration packets.
We are expecting another great year for our organization. Should you have any questions please feel free to call me at
(501) 825-7294, or any of the other officers.
Please return the enclosed form with your
check for membership renewal & assessment.
