During the five decades since its incorporation, AWRA has worked to fulfill its mission to promote an improved understanding of water resources and related issues by providing a multidisciplinary forum for information exchange, professional development and education.
This multidisciplinary emphasis has drawn membership from a wide variety of water-related disciplines in academia, government and private industry and has allowed AWRA programs to rapidly adapt to emerging issues, changes in technology and the shifting needs of its members.
Being fundamentally a grass-roots organization, AWRA has benefited from the efforts of hundreds of volunteer members who have served as elected national officers, regional representatives, and editors. These volunteers have helped AWRA sponsor more than 170 meetings and symposia in the United States and abroad with more than 36,000 attendees.
