New This Week: March is Women AND Water Month
Many of GWW’s events are spearheaded by women, but we also know there’s a desire for women to connect 1:1, so we created a special group in which you can share ideas, celebrate successes, and further opportunities for women. http://bit.ly/GWW-WomenInWater.
HELP SHAPE OFFICE HOURS: Learn how you can grow your technology company or your consulting business by establishing your thought leadership in the GlobalWaterWorks community. RSVP to join your peers at 3 p.m. CT Thursday, March 11, to let us know your wish list and to test drive a GlobalWaterWorks “Office Hours.”
THIS WEEK’S POLL – How should we encourage water reuse?
Education and demonstrations scored the most votes in this week’s poll – a full 58% of respondents choosing those approaches:
Education in schools – 29%

WATER COLLABORATION BULLETIN BOARD – Members are helping members throughout the GlobalWaterWorks community. Whether your request is for talent, tech or insights, listing it in the Water Bulletin Board will help all quickly see and also chime in. Recent requests have been for plumbers for Texas ice storm recovery, innovation ideas for the WaterTower, contributions to SWAN’s Digital Twin White Paper, an internship, talent, etc.). Take a look.
VALUING WATER IS THIS YEAR’S WORLD WATER DAY THEME.
As you prepare for the once-a-year World Water Day Awareness Campaign, we invite you to check out the resources on the WWD Website and consider how you might use this group or the assets made available through WWD to raise awareness of global water opportunities in the next month.
Plan to walk for Water Mission on March 20, and list your WWD event in our calendar. And, if you’re in the Midwest, consider joining us for the World Water Day – Great Lakes Discussion, sponsored by John Robinson and the team at Mazarine Ventures.
WE’RE GROWING! More than 100 new members have joined the community in the last 6 weeks. We invite all to Connect. Collaborate. Celebrate. This 7-minute tour by GWW’s own, Frank Slovenec, will help all make the most of the community and your profile.
