The IRWA Membership Directory is mailed to over 900 communities, rural water systems, government agencies, and associate members around the state and nation. The directory includes key personnel contacts and information on all regional systems, community members, associate members, individual members and non-community members. This is a valuable resource that will remain on business desks all year long. What a great, inexpensive way to get your company noticed!

We have enhanced our directory recently to make it an even better publication and a more useful resource by adding color and additional associate member categories to better direct utilities to your business. In addition, we offer more reference materials in the directory to make it an even greater resource for utility operators such as Operator CEU requirements. Our advertising rates include four-color advertising to grab the attention of our members thus increasing your visibility as a company.

If you advertise in the Water Street Journal, due to the difference in size of the publications,
we CANNOT use the same ad for the membership directory.

Please include your camera ready artwork or send your electronic artwork to claw@iowaruralwater.org no later than April 17th, 2014. All advertisers will receive a complimentary copy of the directory.
