Board & Staff

OWWA is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, supported by the Executive Director and staff. The Board consists of a President, Vice President, Past President, Secretary-Treasurer, AWWA Director, and six Directors, each elected for a three-year term. Each year two new Directors are elected at the OWWA Annual General Meeting (held at the Annual Conference and Trade Show).
