The Water Quality Association (WQA) has announced a new member recognition program — the Mark of Excellence — to honor water treatment professionals demonstrating a commitment to quality at the highest level.
The program distinguishes WQA member companies that sell certified products and employ certified professionals.
“The Mark of Excellence showcases a member company’s professional expertise and reinforces its commitment to top performance-based standards for its employees and the products it sells,” said Heather Duve, WQA membership and development director. “Consumers will be able to identify at a glance which companies have taken those extra steps.”
The Mark of Excellence replaces the six-year-old Business Excellence designation, which required companies to pay a program fee and apply for the recognition. Instead, the Mark is awarded automatically — at no extra charge — to companies that meet its three criteria:
- Are WQA member in good standing
- Sell or manufacture certified water treatment products
- Have certified professionals on staff in the individual location
More information on the recognition program - and how WQA members qualify - is available on the WQA website.
