TRWA Emerging Leaders applications for 2017 are now closed.

We are a new professional development and networking program cultivating emerging leaders in rural water! The TRWA Emerging Leaders program is designed for early- to mid-career rural water professionals who have recently advanced to or are seeking leadership roles within their system, community or at TRWA. The program aims to enhance individual leadership skills and prepare participants to be active and engaged community leaders and advocates for rural water issues. 


TRWA Emerging Leaders focuses on development in the areas of:

  • Leadership 
  • Management
  • Advocacy and Grassroots Engagement
  • Water Policy and Regulatory Relationships
  • Public Relations, including Community Outreach and Media Relations
  • Fundraising

Stay tuned for 2018 TRWAEL Application announcement! 

The application window for the first class of TRWA Emerging Leaders are now closed and we thank all the participants that have applied and are currently going through the program.
