OWQA Joins Specialty Contractors PAC...
see how you can help

The Ohio Water Quality Association has long advocated for the Water Treatment Industry. The OWQA has decided that a Political Action Committee or PAC will enhance our ability to continue this tradition of representing our members with elected officials. To this end, OWQA has joined the Specialty Contractors Political Action Committee (PAC) to raise this unique kind of funding to further our political advocacy goals for the industry.

Now, more than ever, it is critical for the Water Quality Industry to educate our elected officials about who we are and show them the great resource that we can be as they consider complex environmental and business issues at the Ohio Statehouse. Having a PAC will allow the OWQA to pool our membersí personal resources to represent the industry at various political fundraisers to build the political relationships we rely on. OWQA will have control of how OWQA member contributions are spent and the OWQA Board will have oversight over the political strategy and giving decisions.

A PAC can only be funded with personal contributions. The PAC cannot accept corporate donations. The contributions will go toward the campaigns of those running for office in the Ohio General Assembly or for state-wide offices like the Governor, Secretary of State, etc. These contributions will be made to individuals who are friendly to the industry and share in our goals on industry issues. When appropriate, we will be able to pool our contributions with other industry groups that share our interests to heighten our impact with those candidates. There is important work to be done for our industry. The OWQA Board hopes that you will join them in their efforts to fund this Political Action Committee.

Consumer Protection Standards Help Build, Keep Public Confidence
OWQA members subscribe to a Code of Ethics concerned with business practices that encourage consumer respect. As a result, our water treatment industry has earned public confidence at a period when many other businesses have lost it.

OWQA Code of Ethics
The members of this association pledge to uphold all principles of fair, competitive selling. So that we may merit the esteem of the customers in the communities we serve.

1. We offer honest, truthful, clear and completely described values at all times in all circumstances.

2. We tell our customers all they wish to know and everything they are entitled to know about our products and services so that they may make informed decisions and enjoy maximum satisfaction.

3. We use and therefore stand behind only those guarantees and warranties which are reasonable, specific and may dependably be fulfilled.

4. We avoid the use of misleading devices or schemes which could tend to promise capacity or performance beyond the limits recommended by the manufacturers of our products and supplies.

5. We sell our products and services on their own merits, without attempting to downgrade those of our competitors. For we all belong to one industry and the public reputation of that industry is dependent upon our individual integrity.
