CDM Smith is proud to be the recipient of the 2020 Young Professional Employer Support Award from the New England Water Works Association (NEWWA), the region’s largest and oldest not-for-profit organization of water works professionals.

HOLLISTON, Mass­a­chu­setts—CDM Smith is proud to be the recipient of the 2020 Young Profes­sional Employer Support Award from the New England Water Works Association (NEWWA), the region’s largest and oldest not-for-profit orga­ni­za­tion of water works profes­sion­als. This award recognizes an employer who has made a significant effort in supporting and promoting younger member involvement through active partic­i­pa­tion in NEWWA programs, committees and/or presen­ta­tions. Younger members are defined as members under the age of 35 or new to the water works profession.

CDM Smith is committed to providing an unmatched employee experience that is rich in profes­sional development oppor­tu­ni­ties and fosters personal leadership, career growth and development for every employee. CDM Smith has supported the partic­i­pa­tion of their younger and newer employees on several NEWWA volunteer committees, which include program, membership, university outreach, water resources and young profes­sion­als committees. The firm currently supports four young profes­sional members in various roles in these committees, including the chair position. Many CDM Smith young profes­sion­als have also partic­i­pated in NEWWA’s mentoring program as mentees or mentors.

Accepting the award at the virtual 139th annual conference were CDM Smith young profes­sion­als Michaela Bogosh, Colleen Heath, Jihyon Im and Rebecca Guihan, along with mentors David Polcari, Lisa Gove and Alan LeBlanc.

CDM Smith not only provides oppor­tu­ni­ties for young profes­sion­als to network within NEWWA by supporting their attendance at events, but also encourages young leaders to actively participate by contribut­ing to the technical program at NEWWA conferences and serving as panelists at college and university career events. 

The New England Water Works Association is a nonprofit, independent, member-driven orga­ni­za­tion dedicated to serving the region’s water works profes­sion­als and the public interest. It is the oldest and most active regional water works association in the United States. For more than a century, NEWWA has worked to improve and sustain public water supplies, protect public health and safety, and advance the water supply profession. Visit us at newwa.org.
