Membership Advisory Committees
The Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) has three advisory committees open to all organization-based (non-individual) members of the Alliance. Descriptions of the three committees are linked below. A member may join all three committees, although only two representatives (primary & alternate) per member organization may participate in each one. Committee meetings are generally by conference call, with occasional in-person meetings. Note: All volunteers serving on an advisory committee must review and adhere to the AWE Volunteer Service Policy and the AWE Principles of Advisory Committee Operation as applicable.
