If you stopped by The Water Council offices lately at the Global Water Center then chances are you saw a new face amongst us, Angela May. Angela joined The Water Council staff at the end of November as the new Executive Assistant & Office Manager. She has hit the ground running to get up to speed with all the fantastic projects we will embark on in the near future. Please take a moment to learn a bit about our newest addition, and feel free to stop by to say hello and welcome her to the team.
What drew you to The Water Council?
I have a genuine passion for working in the non-profit arena, but I was especially impressed with the rapid growth, development and success The Water Council has experienced in the few short years that it has been active. I am excited to be involved at the core of an organization that is transforming Milwaukee into a World Water Hub; the vision that The Water Council has for the city is inspiring, and it will only get bigger, and brighter as we continue to grow.
Nicely put, The Water Council and Global Water Center are a very dynamic environment, what are you most looking forward to?
I am looking forward to being a part of the local, regional, national, and international expansion that The Water Council is working towards. As you said, this is a dynamic, vibrant environment, not just here at this building, but also in this neighborhood, and in the city; the chatter over water is growing louder with each passing day, we are seeing a shift in the influence that water will have on all of us, and I look forward to helping provide superior opportunities and resources to entrepreneurs and Water Council members in this rapidly evolving industry.
