The association supports the work of 12 volunteer AWRF operational committees who serve the industry and the membership by performing assigned tasks within the scope of our purpose statements. The committee operations are funded by annual budget allocations. The work and achievements of 12 operational committees involves many hours of effort by dozens of volunteers in service to our industry. When committee meetings are called, volunteers attend at their own expense. Each committee is reconstituted annually when a new chairman is named by the AWRF President. After accepting the assignment, the new chairman forms his committee from volunteers. Anyone interested in serving on a committee should make the President or the AWRF office aware of the interest.
