Arthur Sidney Bedell Award
The Arthur Sidney Bedell Award was established to acknowledge extraordinary personal service to a Member Association. General criteria may include organizational leadership, administrative service, membership activity, stimulation of technical functions, or similar participation. However, the Member Associations have ultimate control over the selection of criteria. The award is named for the second president of the Federation, who exemplified its purpose by his long devotion and service to the New York Sewage and Industrial Wastes Association, now the New York Water Environment Association.
