Zenno A. Gorder Award
Named for a long-time AWWA supporter, contributor and membership advocate, this prestigious award recognizes both the individual member and the Section staff member who recruit the most members each year. The award is presented annually during the Opening General Session at ACE.
Diamond Pin Award
This award recognizes cumulative recruitment efforts over time. To qualify, a member must earn 25 points within a two-year timeframe. An additional Diamond Pin is awarded at each consecutive 25-point interval thereafter (up to 500 points, at which point the recruiter earns the Ambassador Award). Winners are recognized annually during the Volunteer Celebration at ACE.
- Individual, utility and service provider members = 1 point each
- Student and operator members = ½ point each
