CH2M HILL’s Daigger Takes Office as President of International Water Assn.

Daigger began his two-year term during the 2010 World Water Congress

CH2M HILL, a global full-service consulting, design, construction and operations firm, is announced that Glen Daigger, CH2M HILL senior vice president and chief technology officer, transitioned from president-elect to president of the International Water Association (IWA) during the 2010 IWA World Water Congress held in Montreal in September. Daigger, who is recognized worldwide as an expert in wastewater treatment technologies, officially took office for a two-year term during the closing IWA Gala Dinner in the Palais de Congres de Montreal.

Daigger has been a member of IWA for 36 years, and has served most recently as president-eelect, senior vice president and as a member of the finance and investment committee.

“I am deeply honored to become the President of the International Water Association,” said Daigger. “As an organization of leaders and doers, we must dare to be great and provide the leadership and innovation to move our profession and industry forward at a much faster rate at the highest quality. The years ahead will be transformational for the water industry, and I look forward to supporting all of the IWA members in embracing and leading the change that must occur.”

Daigger plans to focus on four initiatives during his time in office:
• Continue to build strength, both in participation and financially, to allow the organization to expand its programs;
• Expand the family, by including a broader range of professionals than ever before and growing the new generation of professionals;
• Reinforce the culture of a “bottom-up” organization in which the outstanding results and betterment of society is produced through the interests and initiative of its members; and
• Dare to be great, addressing an increasingly “water constrained” global situation by helping to transform water management policies and practices to see that the needs of all citizens of the planet are met well into the future.
