Benefits of AMWA Membership
We advocate on issues of importance to our member utilities before Congress, EPA, DHS and other agencies. AMWA is able to speak with authority on the full range of drinking water issues.
National Representation on Drinking Water Issues
Because the concerns and requirements of large metropolitan water systems are not always aligned with those of the country’s thousands of smaller water systems, AMWA helps ensure that the perspectives of its member utilities – on issues ranging from infrastructure to water quality protection – are heard in Congress and at regulatory agencies.
Resources for Water Executives
AMWA serves water executives by providing tools and resources that demonstrate best practices to address the challenges of drinking water systems.
INSIGHT Utility Financial Information Database
A unique source of comparable financial data for benchmarking and planning.
Engagement with Policymakers
Serving as the voice of the nation’s largest publicly owned drinking water systems.
Water Policy Conference
Exclusive interactions with key federal legislators and top agency leaders. The conference is held each spring in Washington, D.C.
Executive Management Conference
Leading thinking and lessons from water utility executives and industry experts. The conference is held each fall at locations around the country.

Conferences and Events
