Young Water Professional Committees

There are number of YWP committees across our country. Most Australian Water Association branches have a YWP sub-committee consisting of Australian Water Association members who have been elected onto that committee. Each branch YWP committee nominates a representative to sit on the YWP National Representative Committee (NRC). These representatives work together on the national coordination of YWP activities, and guides the direction the network takes. They greatly assist in the dissemination of information to YWPs around Australia, and provide other representatives with insights into some of the unique needs of YWPs in particular parts of our country. If you have any questions regarding being a YWP, whether it be membership, events or something more specific - then please contact one of your local representatives. Alternatively email networks@awa.asn.au.
