Water Design-Build Council 2020 Officers and Board Members

(L to R: Mike Watson, Bill Hixon, Bryan Bedell, Steve Gates {2018 Past President}, Larry Johnson; missing: Marlea Tichy)

The Water Design-Build Council is governed by a board of directors and lead by the President, First Vice President/Treasurer, Second Vice President/Secretary and Past President. WDBC officers are elected by the members at the annual membership meeting, and officially assume office on January 1. Officers traditionally hold their position for a one-year period, but can continue for a succession of no more than three years, or until a successor is elected and assumes office. No WDBC officer or board member receives compensation for their service. Any board vacancy is filled by the appointment of an individual designated by the respective member firm. WDBC has adopted a succession policy regarding elections and officer vacancies. All WDBC board and committee activities are conducted in full compliance with antitrust laws. Accordingly, each member of the Council has committed to strictly adhering to these practices. Please see the WDBC Antitrust Policy, December 2011.
