DENVER — In a press release on June 15, 2015, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) announced it is seeking volunteers for the Gasket Materials for Water Works Service Committee. The committee’s mission is to develop and maintain standards and related manuals according to procedures outlined in the Standards Program Operating Procedures.

Although AWWA employs a staff to handle the administrative details of the organization, committee work allows the association to attain its basic objectives. Committees are organized under the board of directors, and councils and divisions are composed of those best qualified to address the issues and needs considered vital to AWWA.

Volunteers should have five years of experience (preferred), have knowledge in the area of gasket materials, be available for the term period (three years) and be willing to commit about 2 to 4 hours per month to the committee.

For more information, contact Liz Ralph (303-347-6177).
