The Advocacy Recognition Program highlights outstanding advocacy work undertaken by federal elected officials and NACWA Member Agencies to further municipal clean water priorities. Honorees will be identified for recognition and nominated by the Association’s Government Affairs Group and Management Team. NACWA’s Legislative & Regulatory Policy Committee will consider the nominations and select honorees for recognition. Federal elected officials will receive recognition at the National Water Policy Fly-In and Member Agencies will be recognized during NACWA’s Utility Leadership Conference.

Recognition will be provided based on the following criteria:

Clean Water Advocate (Federal Officials)

              key NACWA advocacy priorities.

                 legal, and/or communications arena to advance key NACWA advocacy

                 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or other federal agencies
                 on regulatory issues, engagement with elected officials and their staffs on
