The AWRA Board serves as the policy making board for the association. Obligations of Board service are considerable and extend well beyond the basic expectations of attending meetings.

Each member of the Board is charged to serve in the best interest of the entire membership, to serve as a leader in motivating support for the organization, to be objective in reviewing policies and procedures focusing on the vision and mission of the organization. A Board Member must know the organization's mission, purpose and goals, and provide leadership and stewardship to keep the organization in fiduciary and legal compliance with today's standards. The Director needs to understand current issues, problems and complexities, and the needs of the membership. The Board of Directors is dedicated to ensuring the stability and the advancement of the profession.

Elections for open positions on the AWRA Board of Directors are announced in January of each year, with the nomination period ending in early March. Ballots are distributed to AWRA Members in June, and results are announced in September for board terms commencing January 1st of the following year.
