Management Innovation Awards

For over 40 years, the NAWC Management Innovation Awards competition has been recognizing its members for their groundbreaking and industry changing – truly innovative – ideas. Today’s innovation is tomorrow’s industry standard, and our members are moving water forward through their leadership and work at the forefront of the water industry.

Management Innovation Award Winners 2018
California Water Service received two 2018 NAWC Management Innovation Awards which were accepted by President and CEO Marty Kropelnicki.

This year, the competition will feature two special categories – one for small companies (less than $1 million GWR) and one for innovations that promote sustainability. Sustainability is commonly defined as the ability to maintain or improve standards of living without damaging or depleting natural resources for present and future generations, and was ingrained as a foundation of environmental law with the signing of the 1969 National Environmental Policy Act.

Otherwise, entries may be in the area of safety, security, administration, finance, engineering, operations, human resources, customer/consumer relations, public relations/information, or any related company activity. And entry must demonstrate how it has made a difference for your company and the people that you serve. This year, judges will evaluate entries on whether they are truly innovative.
