New Jersey American Water’s Kulp appointed to AWWA NJ board

Chelsea Kulp, New Jersey American Water’s senior manager of government and external affairs, has been appointed to a three-year term on the board of trustees of the American Water Works Association New Jersey Section. Together with the board and section staff, Kulp will work with the association’s committees to provide leadership and guidance on addressing the state’s water challenges.

Kulp’s appointment was announced at the organization’s 88th annual conference earlier this spring in Atlantic City.

“Chelsea will be an excellent addition to the AWWA NJ board of trustees,” Joe Aldighieri, chair of the American Water Works Association New Jersey Section, said. “She brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in strategic communications to help prepare New Jersey to meet water supply demands as well as infrastructure and quality challenges.”

Kulp has been with New Jersey American Water since 2015 and has over a decade of experience in customer communications, issues management, media relations and community outreach. Prior to joining New Jersey American Water, she led the communications and marketing strategy for the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey as the organization’s project manager.

Kulp is an active member and past chair of the AWWA NJ Water for People Committee, a global nonprofit working across nine counties to address the global water crisis and equip communities with lasting access to clean water and sanitation services.
