The IWA Project Innovation Awards (PIA) aims to highlight innovative water and wastewater engineering projects around the world, thus bringing recognition to these projects as models of engineering excellence and spreading the knowledge of water and wastewater science and management. The awards span six categories: Applied Research, Planning, Design, Small Projects, Operations/Management, and Marketing and Communication. All 2013 and 2014 E3 award winners are invited to submit their projects online via the IWA PIA website www.iwa-pia.org. More details forthcoming.

Most BCEEs and BCESs were recommended to become Board Certified by a colleague, usually in a brief conversation. It's a tradition that repeats itself time and time again among AAEES's constituents. Be a part of that tradition, and encourage a worthy colleague to join the Academy. A small investment of your time, perhaps two five-minute calls, will be remembered for a lifetime. As a token of thanks this year, for each applicant who lists you as referring them, your name will be entered in a drawing for an AAEES Polo shirt and pin. For help, click here.
