Call to Action for Jersey Water Works Members
Help elevate your work, and the collaborative’s work, by announcing a commitment, or a new initiative or project, at the fifth annual Jersey Water Works Conference.
By announcing commitments, Jersey Water Works’ members demonstrate their dedication to water infrastructure issues and put their voices together to show leaders around the state the continued importance of water infrastructure to our future. Not yet a member? Join the collaborative today.
We’ll compile all the commitments into a single list, so everyone will know the breadth and depth of Jersey Water Works members’ dedication to the issue of water infrastructure in the state.
What Are Commitments?
Commitments are new projects, programs or resources which help advance the goals of Jersey Water Works and have yet to be announced publicly. Commitments can either be completed by the event or can be accomplished within the next year.
Need an example of the power of commitments? In 2017, federal and state agencies, private business, local utilities, municipalities, practitioners, and environmental organizations announced 25 new efforts and commitments to accelerate water innovation in the United States. Check out the commitments announced in 2016 by Jersey Water Works members.
The announcement of commitments is a great platform to allow members to reach a multi-sector audience of almost 2,500 leaders through the Jersey Water Works network working at the local, state and national level in water infrastructure.
Here are some questions that may help you brainstorm what you could announce.
- What are you working on already? Do you have a work item, report or milestone that you’ve been working on that will be ready to announce on Dec. 13?
- What are you planning to do next year? Is your organization launching a new program, conducting a new research project or investing in water infrastructure upgrades in the next year?
- What more could you be doing? How could you take your organization’s water infrastructure work to the next level by planning a new investment, project, or initiative that can be launched at the conference?
