Interested in Joining Our Leadership Team? Consider applying for our volunteer board.

Over the past three years, the Water Collaborative of Greater New Orleans has grown our reach and impact due to members who volunteer their time and talent. We’ve changed the conversation around smarter water management with green infrastructure and are shaping a new industry to include and benefit all residents.

The volunteer leaders who serve on our Steering Committee provide critical oversight and strategic insight to the organization. In 2019, as the Water Collaborative continues its growth, that committee will transition to a Board of Directors. If you share our vision for Greater New Orleans region that lives and thrives with water, apply to join the board!

The Nominating Committee will begin reviewing applicants on Dec. 6. So please respond by Dec. 5 to be guaranteed consideration. The slate of nominees will be presented at the Water Collaborative’s Annual Meeting on Dec. 13.

We’re looking for smart, hardworking volunteer leaders that reflect the communities we serve. People of color, LGBTQ people, longtime residents, young people and residents of Jefferson and St. Bernard Parishes are strongly encouraged to apply.

Technical expertise in water is not a prerequisite to board service. Skill in community relations, financial administration, law, and marketing are equally needed. Please review the board member statement of responsibilities before applying, and direct your questions to

Why serve?

  • Help grow and diversify the local water sector.
