The IAWEA Executive Board is once again urging members to complete applications for the WEF Quarter Century Operator Club. The Quarter Century Operator Club recognizes operators of wastewater treatment facilities for their service and dedication in a difficult and dangerous profession. The Club was created under the sponsorship of Frank Woodbury Jones, who served as the Club’s first registrar. While operators who qualify are encourage to apply at any time, IAWEA tries to generate a group of applications every few years. The last group resulted in over a dozen awardees at the Annual Conference. See below for eligibility and application details:
- Member of WEF for a minimum of five consecutive years immediately preceding application.
- Significant, full-time participant in the water environment profession for a minimum of 25 years, 10 years of which must have been in active participation in the day-to-day collections, maintenance, operations, laboratory, or management of a wastewater transportation or treatment facility.
- Completed and signed application.
Please complete and submit your application before March 31, 2017 in order to receive your award at the Annual Conference.
