Recognize Outstanding Performers!
For over twenty-five years, the Alabama Rural Water Association has offered an opportunity for outstanding employees and individual achievers to be recognized through their Annual Awards Program. The March, 2020, Awards Program is no exception.
There are many employees, board members, office employees and others who have dedicated their careers to the water and wastewater industry. They have demonstrated exemplary performance in their positions. In many cases, their hard work and dedication has contributed significantly to the success of the water or wastewater utility.
Why not take a moment to say thank you! There’s no better way to reward a deserving individual than to nominate he/she for outstanding performance.
During the Association’s 29th Annual Awards Luncheon at least five individuals could be recognized. It could be you, your co-workers, a board member, or other individuals you know.
The ceremony will be held in the Mobile Convention Center Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at 11:30 a.m.
Stop for a moment and take the
time to complete the Nomination
Application. Submit the
Application and questionnaire
providing supportive information
stating why this individual should
be nominated. The deadline
is February 21, 2020. Letters of
recommendation in support
of your nominee may also be submitted but are not required.
Judges will meet in February to select the winners. The winners will be announced in March during the Awards Ceremony.
Two Awards will be given to
worthy utilities who demonstrate
“Vision” for growth, improvement
and expansion of their system
operation by applying and being
approved for a USDA, SRF or
CDBG project. The Water Utility Vision Award will be presented to a
water utility with this demonstrated
“Vision” during 2018 and also
a Wastewater Utility Vision
Award to a Wastewater System demonstrating the same efforts. No Nomination Applications are necessary for these awards, however, if you applied, and were approved for project Loan/Grant funding during the past year and want to insure your utility is considered, please feel free to call, email or fax your project type and funding source to the ARWA at arwa@ alruralwater.com or 334.396.7090 Fax.
