ROCKY MOUNTAIN WATER YPS THIS PAST FALL, RMSAWWA/RMWEA AND ASCE Young Professionals (YPs) teamed up at Icehouse Tavern in downtown Denver, Colo., to network and cheer on the Broncos while they took on the San Diego Chargers for Thursday Night Football. Unfortunately, the Broncos fell to the Chargers, but the event was a big hit! We had more than 60 young professionals attend from all areas of the engineering and water industries. We would like to give a special thank you to our spon-sors who made the event possible: Municipal Treatment, Water Tecnology Group, Moltz Construction, Engineered Equipment Solutions, American Ductile Iron Pipe, and Hach. Go Broncos! Joint YP Committee The purpose of the Rocky Mountain Young Profession-als is to increase involvement of YPs in both organiza-tions’ activities, events, and committees. YPs are members younger than 35 years old and/or those with fewer than 10 years of experience. The committee organizes a variety of events throughout the year—social gatherings, technical career development, community service, and mentoring/education events. The 30 | ROCKY MOUNTAIN WATER JANUARY 2017 committee also supports and coordinates with student chapters of AWWA and WEF, among other activities. Vision, mission, and values One of the most impactful yet underestimated components of a successful organization is a clear and concise vision. When done properly, a vision can inspire and bring people together for a shared common goal and to establish a desired organizational culture. A few thoughtful and impactful words can transform an organization. In 2016, RMWEA created a committee to determine the organization’s vision, mission, and values. This committee now is in the process of unveiling and incorporating them into the culture of RMWEA. The Joint Young Professionals Committee is planning to use the umbrella of RMWEA’s new vision to create its own vision, mission, and values. With a common goal and vision we hope to increase involvement, unity, and inspiration for others to become part of this committee.
