On behalf of the POWRA Board of Directors, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join the membership of this active professional organization in 2016.

As reflected by the professions of our members, this is an association of multiple disciplines that work together in the onlot treatment and disposal program in Pennsylvania. The present membership includes Sewage Enforcement Officers, Engineers, Soil Scientists, Installers, Septic Inspectors, and Service Providers.

We are currently preparing for our Spring Educational Session which aims to broaden the knowledge of our members and attendees of all disciplines. Past sessions have earned SEO's (2) credit hours. Our spring session is currently scheduled for May 13th.

Our annual national conference NOWRA, was held in Virginia Beach this year and was attended by several POWRA members who took advantage of the conference discount offered to POWRA members. This year's NOWRA Conference is being held in Reno, Nevada.

Our current Officers of the Board of Directors are:
          President - Adam Browning
          Vice President - Dave Lockard
          Treasurer - Bruce Willman
          Secretary - Len Spencer

We hope you consider the organization that offers the following benefits:

1. Free or low-cost training sessions offering SEO credits.
2. Advocacy on state issues of importance.
3. Included membership in NOWRA which offers additional benefits that include:
    *   Septic Locator - which is a national searchable directory of providers of onsite wastewater services
