I. The Mission of this committee is to:
Work to improve fellowship, pride, honor, and recognition for our profession.   Work to develop and improve the collective knowledge, skills and professional ethics through increasing educational opportunities. Support the effort by wastewater utilities to continually strive to protect the public health, the environment, and all of our natural resources.

II. Annual Goals and Objectives
A. Offer one major educational conference / event focused on Plant Operations, Maintenance, and other associated staff annually. Based on the existing VWEA schedules and the intent to host the Virginia Operations Challenge Event in combination with the conference event, the activity will normally be planned in June of each year.
B. Work to augment membership through outreach to wastewater treatment professionals.
C. Develop Regional plans to offer single day training events / activities to facilitate full coverage of the State. As an alternative, Webinar activities are also encouraged.
D. Support the effort of the Operations Challenge Vice-Chair to operate a successful Operations Challenge event for the Association which facilitates increased interest and participation from wastewater utilities.
E. Recruit new committee members.
F. Implement a committee chair succession plan to ensure the continued smooth operation of the committee. Elect an Education vice-chair who will share the duties of the chair. At the discretion of the incoming VWEA president, the vice-chair will be appointed to the chair position when the chair completes their term.
G. The Chair and Vice-Chair will update and maintain a "Seminar Manual" to help facilitate continuity in the Committee Activities.
