Specialist Networks

Specialist Networks

The Australian Water Association has 14 Specialist Networks (SN). Each network provides a platform for members to share knowledge and expertise linked to a particular area of water management with the wider membership base. The networks play an important role in delivering the Association’s three core principals of information, networking and recognition to and for members.

All Association members can update their member profile to receive dedicated information about breaking news, latest research or specific industry events relevant to your specialist network.

Specialist Networks Committees

Each SN has a committee whose role is to assist in the planning and delivery of fulfilling the Association’s core principals. Each committee consists of a maximum of 10 members who meet bi-monthly (via teleconference).

Being part of a SN committee provides you with great networking opportunities with a diverse range of professionals, often from different parts of the country who are all keen to share their knowledge and experience.

Australian Water Association professional members are eligible to sit on a SN committee. Between nomination periods, if there are vacant committee places, members may join at the discretion of the convenor(s). If you would like to join a Specialist Network committee, please contact networks@awa.asn.au to see what vacancies are currently available.
