A consortium of rural water industry leaders recently formed The Rural Water Alliance with the primary objective of helping rural water association general managers and board members protect their interests and maximize their effectiveness.
Founded by OMDP, one of the nation’s leading rural water law firms, the RWA will serve as an invaluable resource for rural water managers and boards. While the alliance is in the embryonic stage, its website www.ruralwateralliance.com, already overflows with highly targeted, editorial content written by industry experts.
Additionally, the RWA has launched a monthly newsletter, the Rural Water Report, which will deliver additional content and highlight new additions to the RWA website.
Among the content delivered by the RWA is:
- Industry news
- Feature articles
- Expert legal advice (and forms)
- Advice forum
- Case studies
- Association and manager profiles
- Product announcements
While some of the content is free, the site is subscriber-based. A $500 annual membership provides full access to the site’s vast resources and the Rural Water Report. The RWA also seeks partners interested in helping champion its mission via sponsorship, editorial contributions, and expertise.
