Board and Committee Reports,WCS AWWA Chair Report,Reporting Period September 2013 to September 2014. I had the opportunity along with a few other members of our Section to attend AWWA s regional meeting last fall The meeting was. held in Nappa Valley at the end of October and was attended by members of other sections within our region Our region. includes Alaska Pacific Northwest California Nevada Montana British Columbia and Hawaii The meetings were great learning. tools for all attendees Each section presented on new initiatives currently underway and challenges they were facing in bringing. new benefits to their members Through the open discussion over the two days we were able to assemble a long list of ideas that. we have brought back to the WCS AWWA board and committees and we have been engaging our volunteers to implement these. initiatives over the past year, On November 14 15 2013 the Canadian Affairs Committee CAC organized an event in Calgary to get some of the board members. from all five Canadian AWWA Sections British Columbia Ontario Quebec Atlantic Canada and ourselves together for a. workshop The five Canadian Sections are split amongst three different AWWA regions so they don t have another opportunity to. get together as a group, One of the topics of the meeting was to discuss the Partnership for Safe Water in Canada The Partnership is a voluntary effort. between six drinking water organizations and more than 200 water utilities The goal of the Partnership is to provide a new. measure of public health protection to millions by implementing prevention programs where legislation or regulation does not. exist The preventative measures are based around optimizing surface water treatment plant performance and distribution. system operation The result is the production and delivery of superior quality water to all users. Until recently only utilities in Quebec were able to register and be part of a similar program in Canada AWWA recently took full. ownership of the program which now allows all Canadian utilities access to this program which assists with continuous. improvement and provides top performing utilities an industry recognized standard of excellence. Also at the CAC meeting a strategic planning session was held to allow each section to decide what the top industry concerns were. and narrow them down so that the CAC could focus on what was most important to its members The key outcomes included the. following items, The top three priorities identified of Canada wide importance were. 1 Increasing the public s understanding of the value of water. 2 State of water and sewer infrastructure,3 Capital costs and availability. Every 5 years the Western Canada Section reviews and refocuses their goals as a water community In our last strategic planning. session we had Gary Sullivan from Denver head office assist us The following list is the goals that we developed at our last. strategic planning session,1 Member Engagement,2 Organizational Stewardship. 3 Knowledge Exchange,4 Leadership Advocacy, Each committee board member and volunteer is trying to be mindful of the section strategic goals when formulating business. plans educational events or social networking opportunities. My term as Chair of the Western Canada Section has been a wonderful experience I have met many people from all over North. America that share a passion to provide high quality drinking water and wastewater services Volunteering with AWWA and other. water organizations has enriched both my professional and personal life I have been blessed with meeting many colleagues and. made lifelong friends I look forward to serving the water community as a volunteer and thank WCSAWWA for the opportunity to. be a part of their organization,Respectfully submitted.

WCW Directors Report, Since the last report the WCW Board held two conference call meetings one on May 23rd and the last one on June 30th. A summary of the WCW Conference calls is as follows. Conference Planning Update, Sponsorship revenues are much higher than budgeted. The planning committee had purchased the ereaders to upload the program to in order to reduce paper. The normal Friday lunch will be a breakfast this year. A discussion was had by the WCW Board regarding Associated Engineering s request to sponsor in terms of Carbon. Offset It was not accepted as the Board will have to consider their position and requirements for future Conferences. Although a great idea it has no real cash contribution to revenues. Other items, Final documentation was revived on incorporation The name change to WCW is official.

Respectfully submitted,Sharmila Acharya M Eng P Eng. Communications Committee Chair,Membership Committee Report. Membership is an art with this in mind WCS of AWWA has been looking at understanding the factors and drivers which impact its. Based on this a significant focus to address growth of the WCS membership is through retention of first year members. At the beginning of 2014 0 6 increase in retention of first year members was realised over the previous fiscal year This. is due to an 87 6 retention rate of first year members that had joined the organisation. o In 2013 there were 49 new members Grades 02 and 06. o To date as at July 2014 20 new members,o To date as at July 2014 641 Active members. o Current retention rate 94, With a view to increasing membership the Committee will be completing a survey later this year to be used as a tool to. better identify the tangible and non tangible benefits to increase membership as well as a tool to drive marketing. Figures 1 and 2 show a decline in total membership with the decline being affected primarily through reduced number. of individual membership,2014 WCS AWWA Annual Report.
