George Warren Fuller Award
This award commemorates the sound engineering skills, brilliant diplomatic talent and leadership ability which characterized the life of its namesake. It is given annually in recognition of outstanding leadership or significant contributions to the advancement of the water works practice within the association or section.
Each year’s honoree is chosen by previous award recipients. A formal award presentation will be made at AWWA’s Annual Conference and Exposition (ACE). Honorees are also recognized at their local sections’ annual conferences so that each recipient can celebrate with his or her industry colleagues.
