Open Call: Agencies Please Send in Your Veterans Profiles

In preparation for California Water Professionals Week during the first full week of October we are collecting profiles of veterans who work in the CA water sector.

We are asking agency, public information and HR managers to help us gather great profiles of deserving CA water pros who are veterans. We will accept and republish profiles and photos from any CA water or wastewater agency.

Reasons to participate: Let’s celebrate our outstanding CA water professionals. The sector needs about 6,000 new workers each year. We need to build the next gen pipeline for success. By sharing your story, you’ll help get more people (incl veterans in need of a career) interested in this rewarding profession.

Due date: Oct 1st so we can prepare stories for CA Water Pros Week
