‘New Young Professional of the Year’ award at WEDA summit

The Western Dredging Association (WEDA) has announced that the launch of a new award will be presented at the 2021 WEDA Dredging Summit, to be held virtually from June 14-17, 2021.

Despite the necessity caused by COVID19 to hold the meeting online, the WEDA Board is proceeding with the presentation of its first-ever WEDA Young Professional of the Year Award.

The award will recognize a young person who has made exceptional contributions to the dredging industry, as a whole, and to the Western Dredging Association in particular. 

The deadline for nomination submissions is April 2, 2021.

All nominees for the WEDA Young Professional of the Year Award will receive a one-time one-year free membership to WEDA. 

“The Award Winner will receive a plaque, be recognized on the WEDA website, in a press release and in an email to all WEDA members, and receive an additional one-year free membership to WEDA,” the Association said in their announcement.

The Award recipient will be selected by the WEDA Awards Committee based upon reviewing and assessing the nominations received. 

The 2021 WEDA Young Professional of the Year Award will be presented during the virtual WEDA Summit.
