(WESTERVILLE, OH — August 26, 2014) The National Ground Water Research and Educational Foundation congratulates those chosen to attend the Emerging Leaders Alliance Conference taking place November 10-12, 2014 in Reston, Virginia.
The Foundation believes continuing education in leadership skills will enhance the future effectiveness of the groundwater professions and will maximize the impact of groundwater for society. Emerging Leaders Alliance Conference attendees will experience a week of tuition-free presentations such as those on global and virtual team leadership, managing change, and powerful practices for leading innovation, among others — all important aspects to help move the groundwater industry forward.
The winning National Ground Water Association members were selected based on their commitment to the groundwater industry and their potential to lead the industry into the future. Those chosen are:
"The Foundation’s initial class is indicative of the quality of the industry’s professionals early in their careers,” said NGWA and NGWREF CEO Kevin McCray, CAE. “These Foundation awards are an investment in making people better so they will advance the professions and continue to make other people better, as well."
These individuals, their companies, and the groundwater industry as a whole will benefit from the skills gained from this conference.
NGWREF, founded in 1994 as an IRS-approved public charity, is operated by the National Ground Water Association as a 501(c)(3) public foundation focused on conducting educational, research, and other charitable activities related to a broader public understanding of groundwater.
NGWA, a nonprofit organization composed of U.S. and international groundwater professionals — contractors, equipment manufacturers, suppliers, scientists, and engineers — is dedicated to advancing groundwater knowledge. NGWA’s vision is to be the leading groundwater association that advocates the responsible development, management, and use of water.
