Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash - January 2013
Young Professionals Committee
Brian Kooistra, YP Chair
With 2012 already in the books, the YP Committee is hard at
work finalizing our plans for WATERCON 2013.
We are teaming and partnering with (and leaning on) other committees to
put together one of our best WATERCONs ever.
The YP track programming is taking a big look at jobs with lots to get
excited about: speakers from HR,
workshops on interviewing, a panel with established industry folks discussing
what hit and what missed from their careers, and our FIRST Career Fair. That’s just what the YPs are keeping their
eyes on, and there’s so much more at WATERCON.
The tapping contest is always exciting, and, personally, I’m pumped
about the Bike and Breakfast.
If you can keep your head on a swivel and get through
WATERCON smarter and better prepared for life in the water industry, we’re planning
a calendar of 2013 events to lighten things up a little. Our YP Committee and YP committees we partner
with like IWEA and APWA are diligently coordinating plant tours, charity
events, a legislative tour, and—who could forget—there’s a small matter of a paintball grudge match
with Laurie Dougherty that still needs
settling. See you out there!
