The Young Professionals Committee promotes involvement of young professionals in the drinking water industry in the activities of the Southeast Texas Section of the American Water Works Association and encourages interaction between those new to the industry and seasoned professionals. The Young Professionals Committee often works with young professionals from other industry associations to network and volunteer in the community.

A young professional is defined as anyone 35 years of age or younger who is either working in the water industry or is a student in the field.
