Governance at CAWQ

The Canadian Association on Water Quality is a volunteer organization governed by an Executive Committee and a group of Directors drawn from industry and academia from regions across Canada. All members are nominated by the nominating committee and confirmed at the Annual General Meeting that is held during the Central Regional Conference, the first week of February.

In addition, the Canadian National Committee of the International Water Association (CNC/IWA) is comprised of the Executive Committee of the CAWQ and other additional members as may be required to comply with the Constitution of the IWA. Two members of the CAWQ represent Canadian interests on the Governing Board of the International Water Association.
