A Message from David Main, BCWWA’s President

Under the leadership of our CEO, Tanja McQueen, the BC Water & Waste Association has undertaken significant change over the past several years, making investments in new programs such as public awareness and government advocacy, new services including member news and information, and enhancements to existing programs for education and professional development. These changes have positioned the Association for a bright future as the leading organization for water and wastewater professionals in BC and the Yukon.

Membership News: 2016 Membership Fee Change

On April 1, 2016, BCWWA membership fees are changing to $99 per year for all members, except students.

Why? Over the past few years, the Association has expanded the scope of services offered to members, including public education and advocacy to government; training courses; educational and networking events; and information products for our members. But these services cost the Association over $200 per year, per member, and our membership rates need to move towards full cost recovery.

We have raised our membership fees in order to keep up with the rising cost of delivering high-quality products and services to our members over the past decade. 

Renew before April 1 to take advantage of discounted membership rates before they change.

As a BCWWA member you are able to:

  • Access preferred rates for quality training and professional development events.
  • Influence change as part of a strong and cohesive voice for water and wastewater issues. 
  • Stay informed about the latest industry news and best practices.
  • Build your career and your professional network of industry peers.
