Progress Toward International Working Agreement on Community Scale Sanitation Treatment Systems Continues By Karleen Kos, PSAI Executive Director Greetings from Senegal! I'm in Dakar this week, joining with dozens of others from around the world as we put the final touches on a new International Working Agreement (IWA). The focus of this technical document is non-sewered fecal sludge treatment units that are energy independent, prefabricated, and capable of recovering resources from human and animal waste. The scope of our work is represented by the red box in the sanitation value chain to the right. WEEKLY EDITION January 17, 2018 It's Time to Cast Your Vote! The PSAI Board election will open tomorrow, January 18 Member organization eligibility process and communication. In December 2017, the PSAI contacted all Members to confirm the designated voter for their organization and to remind them that only PSAI Members who are current on their Membership dues as of January 1, 2018 are eligible to vote. This week, a letter is being mailed to all PSAI Members with their Member number and ballot access code. If you live in the United States, you will receive this information via letter in the US mail. If you live outside the US, your letter will be scanned and emailed to you. The system allows only one vote per set of credentials. Please watch for this letter in your mailbox, and if you have questions please call the office at 952-854-8300. We're happy to help. Electronic voting. Voting opens tomorrow, January 18 for the 2018 election period. There are 6 operator candidates and 4 non- operator candidates running for the open positions. As specified in the PSAI Bylaws, operator Members vote for operator candidates, while non-operator Members vote for non-operator candidates. (Note: The 'non-operator' category is the category for suppliers. It replaced the more restrictive category called "Associates" when the PSAI Bylaws were updated in 2014.) OWNERS, SUPERVISORS, AND MANAGERS NEEDED! If you own, supervise, or manage a portable sanitation operator company, TAKE OUR CERTIFICATION SURVEY by January 31st! CLICK HERE.
