Arthur Sidney Bedell Award
The Arthur Sidney Bedell Award was established to acknowledge extraordinary personal service to a member association. The award is named for Arthur Sidney Bedell, the second president of the federation, who exemplified its purpose through his long devotion and service to the New York Sewage and Industrial Wastes Association, now the New York Environment Association. He was Chief of the Bureau of Sewage and Waste Disposal of the New York State Department of Health.
The award consists of a plaque suitably inscribed with the recipient's name and will be presented by a Water Environment Federation representative at the Kansas Water Environment Association annual conference.
Qualification for the award is based on organization leadership, administrative service, membership activity, and stimulation of technical functions, and may now be awarded every year to a member of the Kansas Water Environment Association.
- Must be a member of the Water Environment Federation.
- Organizational leadership, administrative service, membership activity, stimulation of technical functions, or similar participation.
- The size of the membership dictates the frequency with which member associations are eligible to make nominations for the award. The Kansas Water Environment Association is eligible to give this award yearly.
Nominations are accepted from KWEA members. Members should submit a one-page biography of their selection and reasons why they feel the person is deserving of this prestigious award.
The KWEA Bedell Selection Committee consists of the last three recipients of the award. The most senior of the last recipients is the chairperson of the committee.
