The BC Water & Waste Association (BCWWA) supports two student chapters in BC:
- University of BC (UBC) BCWWA Student Chapter
- University of BC Okanagan (UBC-O) BCWWA Student Chapter
Student chapters are recognized by the BCWWA as important tools to ensuring a competent and sustainable water sector workforce, and a cohesive network of water practitioners in BC and the Yukon. Their purpose is to promote student interest in the water sector by facilitating the exchange of knowledge, and by hosting educational and networking events.
The president of each student chapter participates as a member of the BCWWA’s Young Professionals Advisory Committee so that the BCWWA is aware of and can support the activities of each student chapter.
