Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash - November 2013
Past - Chair's Report
Greetings! I want to
again thank everyone who continues to
serve and to assist the Illinois Section as we strive to provide as many
training and education opportunities as possible. Remember that this is the backbone and most
important mission of our organization.
We would not succeed without the efforts of our many volunteers. I know there are many members out there who
would like to volunteer, and I want to encourage everyone to seek out a
colleague and volunteer together! There
are a myriad of committees and all of them can always use more input and
A prime example of a great volunteer opportunity is working
on the Technical Program for the WATERCON 2014.
The Technical Program Committee, chaired by Greg Swanson, met in
September to begin this substantial and important task, and the work is
progressing smoothly. As I stated last
spring, the program continues to get better each year. The 2013 program put together by Theresa
O’Grady, last year’s Vice Chair, was outstanding! This is a great committee to work with and
allows you to see how the technical presentations are selected and slotted.
Remember that the election of new officers is approaching
and the slate of candidates is in this issue, as well as the early bird
registration for WATERCON 2014.
I hope everyone has a Happy Holiday season. See you at WATERCON in March!
