AWRA Sections are developed by those who wish to actively collaborate with AWRA and other chapters on mission-driven initiatives, professional learning, and organizational growth endeavors. AWRA Sections are composed of a vibrant network of multidisciplinary water resource management professionals committed to the mission of AWRA. We work together to increase the recognition and contributions of our members, provide networking opportunities, information exchange, professional development, and education about water resources and related issues. Our 20-section network is a leading force in creating opportunities for emerging leaders in water resources management. Sections are autonomous 501(c)3 organizations, each with their own purpose and priorities, but they are also an extension of AWRA's community. Our priority is to offer reciprocal, meaningful engagement opportunities between AWRA and each section that results in advancing our mission - locally and nationally. Under the strategic direction of the AWRA Board of Directors, the section program is led by AWRA staff to support section development. Section leaders are offered a variety of leadership opportunities to engage with and contribute to the network, sharing their ideas, and expertise.
