WaterNow Impact Award Nomination
The Impact Award is WaterNow’s continuing recognition opportunity that honors public water agency decision makers for leadership around accelerating and/or expanding innovative and sustainable water solutions in their communities. Any governing board member of a public water utility – whether elected or appointed, special district or city or county – is eligible.
The primary criterion for an Impact Award will be evidence of leadership in supporting one or more sustainable water solutions with meaningful effect at the community or regional level. These solutions could include, but are not limited to: enactment of ordinances, direct engagement on policy matters at the state, local or federal levels, initiation of a sustainable water project or strategic initiative. Nominations will also be evaluated based on the extent to which they advance equity in the water space – by helping to make water more affordable, accessible or safer, or provide other benefits for disadvantaged communities. Only WaterNow Alliance members will be eligible to win the WaterNow Impact Award.
WaterNow Alliance will choose one to three winners to receive the 2020 WaterNow Impact Award which will be publicly announced at Tap into Resilience, WaterNow’s Annual Summit, in Austin on April 15, 2020. Winners will be notified in advance of the Summit, and we very much hope that all winners will be able to attend! However, if the winner is unable to join us at the WaterNow Alliance Annual Summit, we would hope that the winner will be able to designate a colleague to accept the award on their behalf.
