Last Meeting Recap
IJAS Science Fair - we are up to 10 volunteers to be judges. Linda may have a couple more people that she can ask. With the 10 he has he will be okay but would like 2 more.

Scholarship Program- Operator Training Scholarship Program submitted by Greg. The online training will also be included as well as applied to attending the conferences. We should consider asking the Board to allow $1000 complimentary registrations annually limited by $250 per person annually. The applicants needs to be a member of the Section. Michelle Piotrowski would be a great person to approve the applications. We will ask Michelle P. to approve this and Greg will submit to the Board for approval.

  • Lara Biggs will offer to go down and do a presentation and will also prepare a list for Kristin. We would like to have some events to get people together outside of the activities of the chapter and the educational events. Do it in the area where the school is. Monday was suggested that as a day for the Young Professionals and Outreach.

Outreach Resources Database
Internships, job shadowing, etc. Organize the information geographically. Maybe we should be finding out how to list websites of those companies and utilities to do internships.
Are utilities using internships? Do we need to build a case on using internships for utilities? Maybe we can do a webinar on why utility internships?
WATERCON 2016 - topic. There is an art to the internships and managing them. And why internships are important for students also.

To Do
  • Kristin - Ask Michelle if she can take on the roll of approving the operator scholarship applications
  • Kristin - post the request for the alums to be involved on ISAWWA and AWWA LinkedIN pages.
  • Kristin - Ask the U of I Chapter if a Monday would be better for them to attend WATERCON?
  • Kristin - Submit a paper on internships at utilities for WATERCON 2016
  • Kristin - develop a 3 question survey on the internships and also ask APWA what response they have had from their survey as well as the YP connections at other Sections and maybe offer a no water no beer t-shirt.
