Associate Membership Benefits

PRWA & Your Company: A Great Fit!

An Associate Membership is available to any business which provides products and services to the water and wastewater industry.  If your company is looking to become visible to over 1,000 water and wastewater systems in Pennsylvania, a PRWA membership is a must-have resource for your toolbox.  Examples include attorneys, engineers, suppliers, financial institutions, or state and federal agencies. Associate Members are non-voting and ineligible to hold a position on the Board of Directors or as an officer of Pennsylvania Rural Water Association.

These and other membership benefits are open to everyone who joins the PRWA team of water and wastewater professionals. The benefits gained through our programs easily offset the cost membership dues. We hope you will join us soon! 

The PRWA Promise: If you are not 100% satisfied with your membership after one full year, we will refund every cent of your first year's dues! It's a risk-free guarantee!
