NSWCA Recognizes Former Association Presidents William Schuckmann and Michael Rich

During the NSWCA summer in-person meeting, current President Amanda Field stood before a constituency of over 50 fellow water commissioners to recognize the outstanding contributions of former Presidents William Schuckmann and Michael Rich.  Commissioner Rich’s presidency passed along to Commissioner Schuckmann during a very challenging time – – the onset of the pandemic.  As part of the executive board, Commissioner Rich continued to work with Commissioner Schuckmann and fellow Commissioners in communicating to the general public about our water supply and what safety measures were being put in place due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Both men worked tirelessly to keep a consistent, steady message that the essential work of water suppliers continued throughout the pandemic, never missing a beat. While offices remained closed to the general public to protect the health and safety of staff and customers, water suppliers continued to work…adhering to the conditions and mandates of the state of emergency.  Commissioner Schuckmann and Commissioner Rich continued to communicate with fellow water suppliers and helped to make PPE available.

Thank you Bill and Mike!  We appreciate your dedication and commitment to the communities we serve.
