With the exception of water operator
groups as listed below, the Illinois Section AWWA shall not offer free advertising

Water Operator Groups
The Illinois Section AWWA recognizes that there are several water operator
focused non-profit groups in the State of Illinois.
The Illinois Section AWWA would like to support those groups and their
development. Meetings hosted by those
recognized groups that include a lunch hour presentation and/or open-house
events will be advertised to the Illinois Section AWWA members as determined
appropriate by the Executive Director at no cost to the water operator
group. This does not include half day
or day long seminars that the operator groups are charging a registration fee
for attending. The water operator groups
shall submit the information in a timely fashion to the Illinois Section AWWA.
The Illinois Section AWWA realizes that the number of trainings offered by
Illinois Section AWWA, AWWA National and other organizations both for-profit
and non-profit are increasing exponentially.
The Illinois Section AWWA is sensitive to over-communication to the
membership by sending out too much information.
Approved at the October 2010 ISAWWA Board meeting.
