Associations help water professionals stay in touch with the rest of the water community. Taking part in the regional events, reading publications, attending conferences, and obtaining training and certification, really helps agencies and employees stay in touch.
I would advise anyone who is interested in succeeding in this field to be inquisitive and helpful. Ask how things work and how they can possibly work better, and challenge yourself to find answers to problems.
