At a general meeting in December 2021 at Spuntino Restaurant in Williston Park, incoming 2022 President Patricia Peterson presented outgoing 2021 NSWCA President Amanda R. Field with an engraved plaque recognizing Commissioner Field’s contributions as President, and also for serving as an NSWCA Board member since 2018.
During her tenure as President, Commissioner Field directed NSWCA positions on water treatment, advocacy, conservation, sustainability and the state of the aquifer. She actively represented the organization in meetings on Long Island and in Albany and increased the recognition of the organization through outreach and dissemination of information regarding the responsibilities and importance of voter-elected, commissioner-run water districts.
Commissioner Field successfully continued the 2021 NSWCA Speaker Series at in-person and virtual meetings that featured luminaries such as former Nassau County Executive Laura Curran; Francis X. DeBobes, Chairman, Nassau County Fire Commission; Deborah Welt, Deputy Executive Director, Nassau County Civil Service Commission and many others.
President Peterson commented, “On behalf of the Board and the members of the Nassau Suffolk Water Commissioners’ Association, I thank Commissioner Amanda Field for all her efforts and services at the helm of this great organization. In an era where COVID has presented daily challenges, Commissioner Field’s leadership has prevailed in promoting positioning and messaging so important to our membership and to the vast communities across Long Island that our members represent.”
