Manasota Chapter

The main focus of the Manasota chapter is to better serve FWEA members located in Manatee, Sarasota, DeSoto, Hardee, and Highland Counties by holding quarterly meetings on topics geared toward enhancing professional development of its members.  Reaching out to students and the community in the area is also one of the chapter’s primary focuses.

Our events include:

  • Summer Member Appreciation Social
  • Quarterly Luncheons
  • CIP Night Social with AWWA
  • 3rd Annual Sporting Clay Event
  • Annual Winter Social with FWEA, AWWA, ASCE, APWA and FES
  • Kayak Event and Picnic benefiting Water for People and FWEA Scholarship Fund
