2005 Already Well Underway

April 2, 2018

About the author: Tim Gregorski, Editorial Director [email protected]


As we flip the calendar to 2005, I still can’t get over how quickly 2004 came and went. A fast year indeed, and 2005 is shaping to move at a faster pace even though we are only in the first month.

Already, WWD is planning well into the year, gearing up for trade shows in Las Vegas (WQA Aquatech USA), San Francisco (AWWA) and Washington D.C. (WEFTEC) to name a select few. Additionally, our editorial offices have been fielding questions regarding submissions as late as the October 2005 issue. Throughout 2005, WWD will continue to adopt our editorial philosophy in which we cater to the ever-changing needs of our readers. Quite often, the WWD editorial offices receive recommendations to cover certain projects or technologies that may or may not be listed in our editorial calendar but may be of utmost importance to our readers. Accordingly, part of the process used in analyzing editorial recommendations involves feedback from our Editorial Advisory Board.

Following the loss of one of our Editorial Advisory Board members, Don Renner, a number of viable candidates stepped forward to volunteer their services in memory of Mr. Renner to help continue to mold WWD’s editorial content.

After an extensive review process, the list of candidates was pared down to two individuals—Dr. Larry W. Moore and Dr. YuJung Chang—both of which more than surpassed the criteria needed to become an Editorial Advisory Board member. Rather than select one over the other, WWD staff decided to accept both of the candidates. Dr. Moore is a professor in the Civil Engineering Department at the University of Memphis where he has spent the last 22 years teaching undergraduate and graduate environmental engineering courses.

Dr. Moore has established a national reputation in the area of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment having presented at various wastewater treatment seminars throughout the U.S.

Our other new Editorial Advisory Board member is Dr. YuJung Chang, national director of advanced water treatment for HDR Engineering, Inc.

Located in HDR’s Seattle office, Dr. Chang joined the firm in 1999 and his responsibilities include developing advanced water treatment technologies for HDR clients. He is a nationally recognized expert in advanced membrane technology with 18 years of experience.

Our new Editorial Advisory Board members have both expressed great interest in contributing feedback on subject matters, new and old, as well as editorial content to WWD.

Already, Dr. Moore has submitted a story slated for print later in 2005. WWD readers may recognize Dr. Chang as he appeared in the October 2004 issue as part of our Industry Insider feature, and was also the featured interview in our Membrane Technology supplement. Additionally, Dr. Chang was part of an editorial team that submitted an article on reverse osmosis in our November 2004 issue.

I would personally like to thank both Dr. Moore and Dr. Chang for their willingness to participate on our Editorial Advisory Board. I look forward to working closely with them and I am certain our readers will appreciate their editorial-related efforts as well.
