2018 IWA Project Innovation Awards

The IWA Project Innovation Awards (PIA) aims to highlight innovative water and wastewater engineering projects around the world, thus bringing recognition to these projects as models of engineering excellence and spreading the knowledge of water and wastewater science and management. The awards span six categories: Applied Research, Planning, Design, Small Projects, Operations/Management, and Marketing and Communication. All 2017 and 2018 E3S award winners will be invited to submit their projects online via the IWA PIA website http://www.iwa-network.org/iwa-project-innovation-awards/. More details forthcoming.

2018 Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook - Sign Up for Your Listing

The Academy invites you to sign up for a listing in the 2018 Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook. We are releasing the Guidebook in both electronic and print format to make this year's edition easier to use and easier to distribute to individuals and organizations looking to connect with environmental specialists. We are expanding the content that each listing receives – enabling web links in the e-version and providing more room to post information on your specialties in both versions. We expect to print and distribute the new publication more widely than we have in the past, with a special focus on outreach at the trade events and conferences we attend during the year. We are also planning an expanded role for the Guidebook in making federal, state, and local agencies aware of the capabilities of our members in helping deal with current environmental engineering needs. Ask your organization to reserve its space by March 31, 2018. It's great exposure for a low cost.

For details, email JSOlmo@aaees.org. Click here to download the 2018 Reservation Form.

2017 Certification Audit Underway

Each person audited is being asked to provide the Recertification Committee with documentation substantiating at least 40 Professional Development Hours. The PDHs are acquired by continuing professional development activities during calendar years January 1, 2015, through December 31, 2016, to ensure compliance with the continuing professional development requirements for Active and Life Active specialty certification. Those who were audited within the past 10 years are exempt from the current cycle. If you have any questions, please let Joyce Dowen know at JDowen@aaees.org.
