Water Environment Federation Announces the 2012 Inductees of its Fellow Recognition Program
WEF Fellow Designation Recognizes Professional Achievement, Stature, and Contributions in Water Quality
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The Water Environment Federation (WEF) proudly announces twenty-three distinguished members as the 2012 group of WEF Fellows. This prestigious designation recognizes members’ achievements, stature, and contributions in professional segments served by WEF. The WEF Fellow Recognition Program, now in its second year, identifies individuals with outstanding accomplishments who have made an impact in their field of expertise and have been approved by the WEF Board of Trustees.
"WEF members are world leaders in water quality, and the Fellow Recognition Program is one way to recognize truly exceptional individuals," said WEF Executive Director Jeff Eger. "We are very proud of the 2012 Fellows and appreciate their outstanding commitment to water quality, the environment, and public health."
A component of the Federation’s respected Awards & Recognition Program, the Fellow Recognition Program underscores WEF’s reputation as a valuable water quality resource, which is due in large part to the expertise of its diverse membership. WEF Fellows are recognized in various areas of expertise including, but not limited to design, education, operations, regulation, research, utility management and leadership.
The 2012 Fellows will be recognized during WEFTEC® 2012, WEF’s annual technical exhibition and conference to be held in New Orleans, La., this September 29 to October 3, and may use the WEF Fellow designation following their name in a professional capacity.
