Membership Vote on Revised By Laws

In an effort to modernize our constitution and by-laws (C&BL), the KY TN Water Environment Association (KY TN WEA) Executive Board created an ad hoc committee to review and make changes to the current version of the Association’s C&BL, based on the 2010 Water Environment Federation‘s guidelines for member associations.  The current C&BL contains many details that are duplicated in the KY TN WEA Operational Guides, allowing the revised C&BL to be streamlined in line with recommendations from WEF.
 
You can see the current version of the C&BL with proposed changes here.  During the annual business meeting on Monday, July 21st at the 2014 KY/TN Water Professionals Conference, members will vote on the adoption of the enclosed C&BL.
 
If you have any questions regarding the changes, please contact Ron Taylor, KY TN WEA Secretary Treasurer at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

 

Candidate for Office of TN Vice President

In addition to modernizing our C&BL, the KY TN WEA Executive Board recognizes the need to alter our annual officer election process.  As a volunteer organization, we are lucky to have many great water professionals who are willing to make a 5-year commitment as a KY TN WEA officer.  To honor and professionally recognize this commitment, the KY TN WEA nominating committee, which consists of the two most recent Tennessee and Kentucky Past Presidents, selected only one candidate for the office of TN Vice President.
 
The nominating committee is pleased to present Mr. Charles Poskas as the nominee for office of TN Vice President.  Charles is employed by GRW in Nashville, TN, and has been an active chair of both the Watershed Committee and the Membership Committee for the past several years.

Mr. Charles Poskas, PE

Charles is a Project Manager for GRW (Nashville office) with over 17 years of experience in water resource planning and wet weather management, as well as the design and construction administration of water and wastewater projects.

Charles has dedicated his career to improving the environment. He is active in the Kentucky-Tennessee Water Environment Association, serving as the Kentucky Co-Chair for the Watershed Committee for five years, and currently serves as the Tennessee Co-Chair for the Membership Committee.
