Who is the AWRA?
The AWRA is dedicated to the advancement of water resources management, research, and education. Members represent a community of water professionals with diverse backgrounds, but they share engagement in solving some of the toughest water resources challenges.
Activities include evening networking dinners with presentations on water-resources topics, field trips, and networking luncheons.
Membership in national AWRA is not required to join ID AWRA.
IDAWRA provides a common forum in which professionals in water resources can exchange ideas pertaining to all aspects of water resources research and management by:
- promoting research and technological, social, economic, and legislative advances;
- collecting and disseminating information, knowledge, and data;
- relating the needs of management, educational institutions, and governmental agencies for specialized services and guidance to qualified professionals and consultants;
- opening up and maintaining lines of communication between members of this Section and the public;
- promoting the rational and objective protection, development, utilization, and management of water resources;
- cooperating with others concerned with water resources; and
- promoting the multidisciplinary objectives of the AWRA.
