The WAVE Program: Welcome the 2024 Cohort!

Please consider supporting the cohort through participation or sponsorship!

The WAVE program engages students and emerging professionals from diverse backgrounds with the water industry through a series of workshops and attendance of the 2024 PNCWA conference. The workshops focus on the various paths within the water industry, networking, skills development, employment opportunities, and conference preparation. Each month until the conference, we will highlight our participants and the program. Logo, company name Description automatically generated.

The WAVE Program is looking for presenters to join our 2024 Workshop Series!

The workshops are the backbone of this program. They allow cohort members to gain knowledge, start building their networks, and are what set the WAVE program apart! This program is grateful to have had phenomenal speakers over the years, some of which have presented multiple times. We are opening the space to welcome both new and returning presenters who want to contribute to this program and get to know the upcoming future leaders in water! All workshops are virtual and follow the general topics outlined in this previous Digest post: WAVE Program Call for Presenters.

The WAVE Program is looking for additional support through sponsorship!

Your sponsorship supports the WAVE cohort's attendance to the PNCWA annual conference as the culmination of the program and helps elevate financial barriers for these emerging professionals. All proceeds will help fund travel, or lodging, or the closing ceremony for the cohort. We’re hoping to raise $2500 this year. Please consider donating at various tiers HERE!
