What is WEFCOM?

WEFCOM allows members to personalize their WEF experience by creating a profile, building networks, and blogging. Members also can post discussions and build resource libraries and a Water Wiki on the site.

WEFCOM is organized into communities. There are several open to all members, including the All Member, WEF Book Club, and Webcasts and Online Courses communities. There also are 17 technical committee communities that will provide discussion forums and resource libraries for their respective topics.

WEFCOM also features an Access Water Knowledge Library and a mascot. The library is a searchable collection of links to past WEF proceedings, Water Environment & Technology articles, and more, all organized by topic. The mascot, a bright green and yellow crocodile that will make an appearance at WEFTEC® 2012, needs a name. Vote in the mascot naming poll on the WEFCOM homepage. The winning name will be revealed Oct. 3.
