602,704 People Reached in the Thunderclap for “Imagine A Day Without Water.”


Not familiar with Thunderclap?
It’s a crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared.
The numbers speak for themselves, and WASDA is getting noticed on multiple social media platforms. Well done WASDA members!
Here are the stats. 46 members downloaded the WASDA Guide and 36 contacted WASDA to learn more. Everyone used their Social Media platforms to spread the word and bring awareness to the dire need for improvement in our nation’s infrastructure.
We want to thank everyone who participated in “Imagine A Day Without Water.” Now, let’s keep the momentum going. Visit WASDA on Facebook and Twitter and share posts and tweets with your customers and associates as often as possible.

 WASDA Proposes New Membership Type – Affiliate Membership


WASDA’s Board of Directors and Membership Committee are proposing the addition of an Affiliate Membership category.

Affiliate Membership in WASDA would encourage organizations that advocate for federal, state, and local policies – that affect the businesses of Distributor and Manufacturer Members – to become members.
It’s a win, win. Affiliate Members could educate WASDA members about advocacy and in exchange gain substantial industry expertise that WASDA members provide.
Our goal is to build connections that will strengthen communication both within and about the industry. Voting members (Distributors) will be asked to approve a bylaw change reflecting this new category during the General Business Session of the upcoming Fall Meeting & Partnership Forum at noon on October 18, 2016.
Please review the eligibility requirements of the proposed membership category here and submit any comments to wasda@fernley.com.
