Membership Directory Advertising

The Iowa Rural Water Association (IRWA) is getting ready to print the 2019-2020 IRWA Membership Directory. Our directory is mailed to over 800 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! 

Our Membership Directory is created for easy reading and use.  You will notice three different ad size options.  These sizes are the same dimensions as the Water Street Journal ads.  However, we do not offer a Business Card sized ad in the directory.  Our advertising rates include four-color advertising to grab the attention of our members thus increasing your visibility as a company.

If you would like to “get noticed” in the 2019-2020 IRWA Membership Directory, simply complete the enclosed form and return it along with payment.  Please send your electronic artwork to [email protected]  no later than Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019.  All advertisers will receive a complimentary copy of the directory. 

Please include payment and camera-ready or electronic artwork with your order.
