Membership Benefits

As a WWEMA member, you’ll join a group of the most influential executives in the industry—decision-makers who are working together to shape the future of water and wastewater technology—and you’ll access resources to help your company grow and succeed. The benefits of membership include WWEMA meetings, educational programming, industry information, and networking opportunities.

WWEMA offers exclusive member benefits you can’t get anywhere else. Our weekly Member Bulletin summarizes and provides a comprehensive analysis of legislative, regulatory, and policy events for the week. Our WWEMA Market Indicators Survey Report gauges the water and wastewater equipment manufacturing market over an extended period of time. WWEMA is also well-known for its Member Concierge Service. When members have industry-related questions or concerns, the WWEMA staff does the research and provides the answers in a timely manner. The Concierge Service is consistently rated as one of the top benefits by WWEMA members.

Additional member benefits include webinars; brand and product promotion; the Members-Only section of the WWEMA website where you have access to special reports, presentations, and meeting summaries; and Affliate Programs like SplashLink, Boenning & Scattergood M&A Monitor, Tempus Currently Outlook Report, and ConsensusDocs.

ADVOCATE

WWEMA is the only organization solely representing the interests of water and wastewater technology providers on regulatory, legislative, and policy issues. WWEMA is the principal advocate for technology providers by promoting value-based procurement; defending fair and open trade; supporting sustainable infrastructure financing; promoting adoption of new and innovative technologies; and advising the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to help ensure that proposed water regulations are scientifically-based and technologically achievable. WWEMA also works with states and utilities to find ways to break down barriers to new, innovative solutions to today’s water and wastewater challenges and improve market access to member-company technologies.

Among the many issues members work together to tackle:

  • Fair and open trade
  • Increased funding for water and wastewater infrastructure
  • Acceptance and adoption of innovative technologies
  • Value-based procurement
  • Responsible water regulations
  • Building your business bottom line

I’m active in a number of associations in the water industry. The difference between WWEMA and all the others is that this is the only association working specifically for us as manufacturers. It’s the only place providing the specific types of information and connections we need. And not only that, but it tends to be quicker and more nimble than the other organizations, so it gets us what we need when we need it.

We send our entire contracts department to the WWEMA Finance & Contract Administration Council events. If we can avoid even one big contract mistake as a result of this conference, we’ve paid not only for their registrations, but for our WWEMA dues for the whole year.
