WEF Needs YOU to be a Water Advocate!
Aging infrastructure, strict regulatory requirements, and continued economic pressures have put unprecedented stress on local governments and agencies that provide essential water services, but you can help!
The Water Advocates program will create a network of water professionals in every state and community, in every congressional district, to get the word out about the value of water and steps needed to protect it. As part of the network, you’ll receive the training and information needed to become an effective Water Advocate for clean and safe water. It’s a great opportunity to help in specific ways, including letters to elected officials and newspaper editors, presentations to business and community organizations, and visits to legislative offices.

Join us on Thursday, March 6th, from 2 – 3 PM to
get tips and instructions on how to schedule, prepare for, and have an
effective meeting with a Member of Congress. While the first Water
Advocates webcast in January introduced the Water Advocates program, this
webcast will give useful tips and guidance about how to request a meeting, what
you’ll need to do to prepare, and how to have a successful meeting. Additionally, in preparation for the WEF/NACWA National Water Policy Forum & Fly-In on April 7 – 9, the webcast will also cover valuable information
about registration, the agenda, congressional meeting talking points, and
congressional meeting coordination assistance.
