KsAWWA Leadership Development Program

Objectives

The purpose of this program is to facilitate member development for leadership roles within the Kansas Section AWWA (KsAWWA) and/or our parent organizations AWWA. KsAWWA desires to establish mentoring processes to enhance member benefits, sustain strong leadership for KsAWWA, and expand networking opportunities for our members.

Our Mentors are current and past members of the KsAWWA Board of Trustees, Directors and Committee Chairs.

The Leadership Development period will have a term of approximately one year beginning at the KsAWWA/KWEA Joint Annual Conference and ending with the following annual conference.

Mentees activities will include attending Board of Trustees meetings, committee meetings, schools, workshops, seminars, and other activities as opportunities arise and the schedule allows. The mentor will use those opportunities to introduce the mentee to other members, discuss with the mentee how the activity supports the mission and goals of KsAWWA, and the process for getting engaged and becoming part of that activity. The mentors will share their experiences as a member and leader of KsAWWA and how they have benefited from that experience.
