Help set ADA’s direction in 2019

Help set ADA’s direction in 2019

ADA is seeking candidates interested in joining either of ADA’s Committees. Both ADA’s Policy & Finance Committee and Technical & Environmental Committee ably advise us on matters affecting our members’ flood and water management in the UK.

Becoming a Committee Member offers an opportunity to help steer and contribute to ADA’s work championing and campaigning for the sustainable delivery of water level management. They provide guidance, advice and support to our members across the UK, and help us inform the general public about our members’ essential work.

A role on an ADA Committee can help with your own personal development, and provides excellent opportunities to gain a broader understanding of flood and water management policy matters.

Each Committee typically meets three times a year, either in London or by teleconference and reasonable travel expenses to attend are paid by ADA.

New Members

Members of both Committees serve terms of three years. In 2019 each Committee has four vacancies to be filled by candidates from across ADA’s membership. We are always on the lookout for a range of skills on both Committees and we have identified that each Committee would especially benefit from candidates with any of the following knowledge and expertise in 2019:

Technical and Environmental Committee
Policy and Finance Committee
Local authority flood management, IDB financial management and funding, and/or
