 Why join FWQA?

  1. Education − FWQA enhances the education of water issues both through formal speakers, presentations and through informal networking with other FWQA members.

Service − Joining FWQA provides members with an opportunity to serve the professional water quality community, whether it is by volunteering for judging at science fairs, providing informal mentoring to other members, or serving on FWQA's Board. FWQA is constantly looking for self-motivated people to help guide the organization in both its mission and its programmatic offerings.
  3. Networking − FWQA provides opportunities to get to know local water quality professionals from a wide array of disciplines and employers (Federal, private industry and trade associations).
  4. Something for everyone − Being the Federal chapter for WEF, FWQA has a broad focus that runs the gamut from local, to national, and even to international issues.

Joining FWQA is quick and easy. You can either add us as you local affiliate when you join the Water Environment Federation (join at here) or you can join as a local FWQA member by filling out our online application (you may also use the PDF application ).

  Member Benefits:

  • Invitations to all association events;
  • Reduced rates for monthly luncheons and other events; and
  • Monthly newsletter.

In addition, joining FWQA gives you the opportunity to be affiliated with the experts in various aspects of the water quality issues facing us today.

Many private companies subsidize membership in WEF MA's because it is an excellent way for their employees to stay engaged on the cutting edge of water quality issues. Joining FWQA in particular engages members in both the technical and policy aspects of water quality, which is unique to the FWQA relative to other water quality organizations. Check with your company to see if they offer reimbursement for annual FWQA dues!
