Last year, the CWEA Students and Young Professionals Committee participated in its first ever Community Service Project during the Annual Conference in Sacramento. The Water Project is a nonprofit organization helping sub-Saharan African communities gain access to clean, safe water through training expertise and financial support. The Students and Young Professionals Committee hosted an informational table where you participants could sign up to take the Water Challenge to help keep the water flowing.
