IWA Strategic Council 2022 elected

London, UK, 28 February 2022.

The 2022 election process for the International Water Association’s Strategic Council has been concluded and the IWA Board of Directors endorsed the results in December 2021. IWA is pleased to welcome fourteen new members to the Strategic Council. Additionally, Mr Walter Kling of Vienna Water and member of the Strategic Council since 2015 has been appointed as the new Chair. The newly elected members assume their duties in March 2022.

The IWA Strategic Council provides guidance to the Board of Directors and the Governing Assembly in the strategic direction of the Association. It also assists in the development and coordination of member activities within the Association. The Strategic Council is representative of IWA’s membership: it is composed of a balanced representation from Specialist Groups, member segments, low- and middle-income countries, young water professionals, and other internal and external committees and agencies. In addition, the Council assists in the coordination of the work of various Specialist Groups, clusters, Task Groups, and Task Forces of the Association.

The Strategic Council requires a nomination process from amongst IWA members, an endorsement process, and a voting process. The new IWA Strategic Council continues the excellent work of previous members and will ensure that IWA further progresses its work to inspire change and represent the Association’s worldwide membership.

IWA expresses its gratitude to the outgoing Strategic Council members for their contributions to IWA’s strategic initiatives and direction over the past two years.
