MISSION STATEMENT

Mission Statement The Newsletter Committee strives to distribute relevant and timely information to the members of the Wisconsin Water Association (WWA) through its printed publication, while providing a means for the vendor members as well as other Committees of WWA to regularly contact its members. The WWA Newsletter is "of the members, by the members and form the members".

GOALS

  • Timely publication of three issues - Spring, Summer/Fall, Winter.
  • Review advertising pricing structure and strive to remain at or below 40% ad space per issue.
  • Maintain regularly featured articles in each issue. For example: cover story, chair’s message, director’s report, committee reports, annual meeting information, member features, research, technology, archives, PSC news, DNR news regulatory updates, relevant events/issues.
  • Increase number of regular features in each issue based on interest from committee chairs – including PSC Conservation, MEG, Communications, Water Utility Financing.
  • Alert members to significant changes in the water industry and in the organization.
  • Encourage more involvement by committees in newsletter article submission.
  • Attempt to energize the organization by motivating a higher percentage of our members to add their own value to the newsletter by submitting information and articles.
  • Publish a minimum of at least one committee report from each WWA committee annually.
  • Target communities for cover stories and other articles (100-year communities) to promote membership.
  • Obtain more technical articles.
  • Regularly review the new AWWA web site Section Synergy page for potential articles.
