AMTA

The American Membrane Technology Association was originally named the National Water Supply Improvement Association (NWSIA) and was formed in 1972 to promote the improvement of national water supplies through desalting, reuse and other water sciences. In 1981, the name was changed to Water Supply Improvement Association (WSIA). In 1986 subsequent to a merger with the International Desalination and Environmental Association, WSIA became the North American affiliate of the International Desalination Association, under its original NWSIA name. In 1993, the name was changed to the American Desalting Association (ADA). Then in 2000, the name was changed to the American Membrane Technology Association (AMTA).

CaribDA

Most Caribbean islands share the same unique challenges. Specifically with regard to providing pure and healthy potable water for their inhabitants, many islands depend largely on desalination. Having similar historical and cultural backgrounds, geographical positions and with low resources combined with high energy costs, the Association was formed to share experiences, information, operational data, technical standards and other resources; work together to improve the quality and quantity of potable water; and lower the costs of production through application of desalination technology and water reuse in the Caribbean. CaribDA will be a platform for desalination and water reuse owners, designers and operators and others involved or having an interest in desalination and water reuse.

SEDA

The Southeast Desalting Association (SEDA) formed in 1994 as an affiliate of the American Membrane Technology Association (AMTA) - (formerly the American Desalting Association). SEDA is dedicated to the improvement of the quality of water supplies through membrane desalting and filtration, water reuse, and other water sciences. The Association includes members concerned with environmental regulations and legislation, process design, equipment manufacture, plant operations and maintenance, and research and development. The Association's objectives include the promotion, both to the public and to elected officials, of available technologies that improve water quality education, training and certification of plant operation personnel; effective communication with the membership; development of a meaningful interface with regulatory agencies, technology transfer, and protection of the environment.

SWMOA

SWMOA is the Southwest Membrane Operators Association – the newest affiliate of the American Membrane Technology Association dedicated to the Southwest United States region including, but not limited to, Arizona, California, Hawaii, and Nevada . SWMOA is a membrane operators group that has been formed to provide membrane operators a forum to exchange information, share experiences and knowledge, obtain training and acquire continuing education credits necessary for Operator Certification requirements. SWMOA is an organization that is for membrane operators, run by membrane operators and has been established to meet the technical needs of membrane operators. The number of membrane based treatment plants is growing rapidly in the southwest. With that growth there is a need for an organization dedicated to the education, training and networking of people involved in membrane technology. SWMOA is dedicated to filling that need, with our focus on training membrane plant operators. We also hope to be an information resource for elected officials, utility managers and the public who are using, or considering using, a membrane based treatment plant.
