Although the Section does have a small staff team to provide support for the day-to-day activities, we are still member driven. That means much of what the Section offers to members is created by other members volunteering their time and expertise.

There are a number of ways to get involved. Extra hands are always needed.

  • Regional Planning Task Force - is planning the Spring Regional Meetings and UP Water Works Institute
  • Water Works News writer/reviewer - volunteers write articles and act as proof readers before issues go to press. You can write an article (technical or otherwise) or volunteer to act as one of the reviewers.
  • Work MI-ACE or Joint Expo - volunteer to work the registration desk or some other aspect of the conference or expo.

Not quite sure what you want to do? Review the Council and Committee Descriptions here. Complete the volunteer interest form to let us know that you're interested and we'll help you find the best fit for you.

There are always a number of groups, projects, and activities going on in which to get involved.
