“I challenge us all to focus on smarter approaches to managing water and look to drive innovation in our priority areas, including nutrient removal and recovery, energy recovery, and stormwater management,” said Samuels. “This will require us not just to communicate more and to think bigger but to show how we are ready to adopt new approaches that can provide even better and more sustainable services.”

In addition to President Samuels, the 2012-2013 Board of Trustees includes: President-Elect Sandra Ralston (Charleston, S.C.), Vice President Ed McCormick (Oakland, Ga.), Treasurer Rick Warner (Reno, Nev.), Immediate Past President Bond, Secretary and Executive Director Jeff Eger (Alexandria, Va.), Trustees Charles Bott (Hampton Roads, Va.), Fran Burlingham (Walnut Creek, Calif.), Kartik Chandran (New York, N.Y.), Scott Cummings (Auburn, Ala.), Ralph Exton (Trevose, Pa.), John Hart (Saco, Maine), Garry Macdonald (Auckland, New Zealand), George Martin (Greenwood, S.C.), Karen Pallansch (Alexandria, Va.), and Scott Trotter (Saint Charles, Ill.).
