This committee will consist of at least three (3) or more members to be appointed by the President. Each year a new member is appointed and they will serve on the committee until they have rotated up to Chairperson. Their duty is to be aware of and take necessary action concerning any existing or proposed local, state or federal legislation and ordinances or regulations that might affect the water industry. The committee will be responsible for keeping the Association’s active members updated on pending legislation by implementing a calling scheme (tree) or by mail, whichever best suits the need to notify members. The committee will also update the active members at the annual business meeting and annual conference each year, if necessary. The committee will work with any lobbyist necessary to carry out the objectives of the water industry.
