The American Water Works Association (AWWA) is seeking an executive director to replace Jack W. Hoffbuhr, who announced his retirement in July.

The 60,000-member organization hopes to have the position filled by the beginning of 2008, according to a job description posted on the AWWA web site.

“We’re the oldest and largest water association in the world,” said Greg Kail, senior public affairs manager. “It’s an important position for leadership in the water industry.”

The AWWA executive director leads a staff of 155 and has an annual budget of $34 million. No salary information was provided.

AWWA lobbies federal officials and agencies on water issues, holds national conferences, provides education and training for water professionals and publishes water information for industry and the general public.

Hoffbuhr has been AWWA’s executive director for 11 years. When he announced his retirement, he said he would stay until a successor is hired and through the transition period.
