Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash - February 2014




Kyla Jacobsen
AWWA  Director

This is an awkward time for a report. As I write this, it is before the AWWA Winter Board meeting, but when you are reading this article, the meeting will have already happened. I cannot predict the future, so all I can tell you at this time is that there will be new Vice-Presidents elected and a new President-elect. The field for the VP positions is very robust with many great candidates. The race for president is between 2 candidates that are both from my Director’s class – Gene Koontz (VP from Pennsylvania section who was our WATERCON guest in 2012) and Rosemary Smud (VP Director-at-Large from the Service Provider sector). Both candidates are worthy and would serve the Association well. I don’t want to tip my hand as to how I’ll vote just yet! Also, I haven’t even received my board packet for the meeting, so I’m not sure what items will be discussed.

Also, along the "awkward time for a report” line, the Section election results have not yet been announced at the time of this article, but by the time you read it, all will have been revealed. I do know that my 3-year term as Section Director will conclude in June at ACE2014 in Boston and a new (yet to be named) Director will serve.

I can tell you that the Association has reworked its strategic initiatives and currently is working to align all the committees and all efforts to adopt the same goals and strategies. With each new presidential administration, there are new initiatives, so we will stand by to see what great things that our next new Association President, our very own John Donahue, has in store for us.

I am looking forward to WATERCON 2014. It’s going to be a great conference, AGAIN! The Technical Program Committee has put together a fantastic program and all the extra-curricular activities will help make the conference a great learning and networking opportunity. AWWA Vice-President Doug Brinkman, from the Maryland Section will be our honored guest. SEE YOU IN SPRINGFIELD.
