Section Director UPDATE ‒ Bryan Phinney

Every three years the general membership elects a Section Director. The Section Director is a member of the Section's Board of Trustees and is also a member of the AWWA (the Association)'s Board of Directors representing the Intermountain Section. In October 2019, Clint Jensen was elected by the general membership to be the section Director. Clint resigned in August 2020 due to a new career opportunity. In accordance with the Intermountain Section bylaws, the Board of Trustees voted in August 2020 and elected Bryan Phinney of Keller and Associates, who is one of the 2019 candidates for the Section Director election, to be the Section Director. Please join us in congratulating Bryan and thanking him for his willingness to serve.
