WEF Sets New Strategic Direction

Posted February 1, 2012

By Matt Bond, 2011-2012 WEF President

 

 

Excerpts from President’s Column in February Highlights 

The WEF Board of Trustees and staff worked throughout 2011 to evaluate all facets of WEF; give every WEF member the opportunity to provide input through surveys, focus groups, and interviews; and develop a future direction that responds to the needs of the water sector and WEF members. Our planning was extremely successful due to an enthusiastic, willing, and able Board of Trustees; excellent WEF staff leadership, especially our new Executive Director Jeff Eger; and great data from our consultant-assisted process. The result of our efforts is a new, bold strategic direction for WEF.

 

Our vision: WEF essential to water professionals around the world. This captures our aspiration to be an indispensable and vital part of your career.

 

Our mission statement: WEF’s Mission — to provide bold leadership, champion innovation, connect water professionals, and leverage knowledge to support clean and safe water worldwide. This illustrates how our strengths will be applied to our commitment to protect public health.

 

Our critical objectives: Drive innovation in the water sector, enrich the expertise of global water professionals, and increase awareness of the value of water. This will focus WEF on achieving the vision and mission.

 

The WEF Board of Trustees is excited about the future of WEF and of the water sector. We eagerly anticipate your participation in our forward movement, and would like to hear from you. Let me know how our new strategic direction resonates with you, or more importantly, how you would like to get involved.

 

Read the strategic direction document for more details, send your comments or questions to WEFPresident@wef.org, and watch for some exciting announcements in the weeks ahead. Thanks to everyone for your involvement and commitment to WEF.
