We encourage a two year membership for all state certified water, wastewater and collection system operators. To insure keeping the memberships and record keeping current, we will send an invoice approximately one month prior to membership expiration.
Grant Funding to support Free CEH Training is not always available to the ARWA. However, all current members of the Society of Water Professionals will receive local training FREE of Charge for Water Operator needs. Any Non-Member of the Society of Water Professionals will pay an administrative fee of $50.00 per local training session for any training not covered by a grant. This does not include the registration fees for the ARWA Annual Conference, or the AL/FL Conference.
