Call to Action for Jersey Water Works Members

Help elevate your work—and the work of the collaborative—by announcing a new commitment, initiative, or project at the seventh annual Jersey Water Works Conference. 

By announcing commitments, Jersey Water Works members demonstrate their dedication to water infrastructure issues and combine their voices to show leaders across the state the continued importance of water infrastructure for our future. Not a member yet? 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 across the state.

Commitments are new projects, programs, or resources that help advance the goals of Jersey Water Works and have not yet been announced publicly. Commitments can either be completed by the event or accomplished within the next year.

Need an example of the power of commitments? In 2020, more than 35 federal and state agencies, private businesses, local utilities, municipalities, practitioners, and environmental organizations announced new efforts and commitments to accelerate water innovation in the United States. Check out the commitments announced in past years by Jersey Water Works members.

The announcement of commitments enables members to reach a multi-sector audience through the Jersey Water Works network, which includes almost 2,500 water infrastructure leaders at the local, state, and national levels.

Here are some questions that may help you brainstorm for potential announcements:

  1. 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. 9?
  2. 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
  3. 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?

Commitments are organized into three tiers or levels, reflecting the different levels of resources required. Depending on the tier into which your commitment falls, you’ll receive a certain level of promotion at the conference.

Tier One

Commitments at this tier require major investment of new resources, whether time or funding. In addition to the benefits available for commitments at tiers two and three, tier one commitments will receive:
