Subcommittee Co-Chair Leadership Opportunities

Each of CASQA’s subcommittees is led by a team of two co-chairs. Co-Chairs serve two-year terms, with a maximum of three consecutive terms, and are also part of CASQA’s Executive Program Committee (EPC). Serving as a co-chair is an excellent leadership opportunity for CASQA members, where you not only support CASQA’s mission, but also develop professionally as you work side-by-side with some of the most talented and engaged individuals in stormwater. Each fall, nominations are received from within each subcommittee (for open co-chair positions) and the nominations are confirmed by the Board of Directors in January. Click on the links below to see the current list of co-chairs, as well as the timeline for co-chair terms.
