Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash -  June 2013

 


Chair-Elect Report

Theresa O'Grady

We have closed the books on another successful WATERCON conference! It would not be the success that it is without all the volunteers (presenters, moderators, board and committee members, etc.), exhibitors and attendees. A big thank you to ISAWWA staff (Laurie, Lisa and Sandi) who take pride in their work and do their best to make each year’s conference better than last year’s conference. Hopefully, you were able to attend at least one day of the conference this year.

Plans have already begun for next year’s conference. We got great feedback from the attendees and exhibitors. We are using this feedback to make next year’s conference even better. Just a few sneak peeks into next year’s conference:



  • We will be targeting specific tracks and will be more selective than in past years with accepting abstracts. By doing this, we are trying to enhance the quality of the presentations instead of quantity of presentations.

  • We are working on ways to incorporate more audience participation in "special” sessions that were new this year including the Operator’s Challenge and Mission Impossible.

  • We are planning on opening the Exhibit Hall a little later on Monday to allow exhibitors to travel to Springfield and setup on Monday morning.

If you have any other ides, please feel free to contact me. We are always looking for ways to improve!

Just a couple more things I want to mention:

  •  Visitation Day will be held in Litchfield, Illinois this fall. The golf outing will be held on October 10th and the tour of the new lime softening and microfiltration water treatment plant will take place on October 11th. You will be receiving more information about this event in the near future. Hope everyone can attend!

  • AWWA will hold the 2013 Distribution System Symposium and Emergency Preparedness Conference in Itasca from September 15th through 18th. This is a national conference that is being held in Illinois. I encourage everyone to attend. This is a great opportunity to interact with water professionals throughout the country in our own backyard.

Hope everyone has a great summer!
