Eric Lynne, PE, ENV SP was recently nominated as the 2016-19 Water Environment Federation (WEF) Delegate by the Central States Water Environment Association (CSWEA). Eric has been an active member of CSWEA since joining in 2009. He started in WEF as a student member, competing in (and, humbly, not winning) the graduate-level student paper competition. As Student and Young Professional (YP) Committee Chair (2011-13) and Secretary-Treasurer (2014-17), Eric continues to help develop new chapters and motivate student design teams. Eric served as YP Representative to the Executive Board (2012-14). He understands that serving on the Board was a privilege not available to all members, and enthusiastically shared thoughts and comments from YP representation.
As WEF Delegate, Eric will serve as a liaison between CSWEA and WEF, providing a fresh perspective to the Delegate role and continuing CSWEA's strong YP program. Recently, Eric transitioned to Past-Chair (2014-15) of the Global Water Stewardship (GWS) committee, which successfully attracted new members, engaged dormant members, and inspired active members. He intends to remain involved with GWS and looks forward to sharing the group’s’ successes with other Member Associations in WEF.
Eric works in Donohue’s Sheboygan office, addressing water and wastewater treatment challenges at municipalities throughout the Midwest. He has been recognized by CSWEA with the following awards: WEA Service Award, WI Section Service Award, and Young Professional of the Year. He was also selected to be a member of the prestigious Sentral States Select Society of Sanitary Sludge Shovelers (7S).
