Young Professionals Committee

The Young Professionals committee was formed to empower young professionals (less than 5 years in the environmental field) in the MEWEA by creating an active environment of learning, networking, and leadership.  If you’re interested in getting involved with the committee, want to participate in events, have ideas, or have questions, please contact committee chair Mike Guethle.

The Young Professionals Committee. What’s in a name?

When you think of the Young Professionals Committee, what do you envision? One of the most common misconceptions I have run into since helping start the YP committee is that someone has to be quite young to join and participate, and that’s just not true. It’s our committee’s MISSION to support those with less than five years experience in the field, to provide fun opportunities for networking and professional growth and to promote the water environment industry as an attractive career choice… and that mission is something professionals of ALL ages can get behind.

Whether it’s our award winning 5K team, a fun day of kayaking, our mentor/mentee program at the fall convention, our fundraising at the golf tournament, our new scholarship program or representing our industry at job fairs, there are plenty of opportunities for you to lend a hand and have a great time doing it. What better way to begin getting involved with MeWEA than with us?
