I always look forward to March for a few reasons. First, with my last name, St. Patrick's Day is always a fun day. Second, the weather is usually starting to warm up, this year especially so. And third, it is great to see everyone at WATERCON. With close to 1500 attendees, it was once again a great show. Thank you to everyone who helped make it a success!
And now that WATERCON 2012 is over, it is time to start planning WATERCON 2013.
As Vice-Chair, one of my duties is Chair of Technical Program Committee for the annual conference. It is time to start thinking about presentations for next year's conference. If you are not up to the challenge of being a presenter, there are many other ways to get involved. If you need ideas on how to get involved, you can contact me, ISAWWA Section Staff, or any of the other Board members. (I can be reached by phone at 630-820-1022 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .)
In my last Splash article I provided some pointers about the new ISAWWA website, http://www.isawwa.org/. Hopefully everyone has had a chance to log onto the new website and explore. A lot of work has been put into making it a great resource for all of the members. If you run into any problems or have any suggestions on how to make the website even better, please call or email me or ISAWWA Section Staff.
Finally, please mark your calendars for the 2012 ISAWWA Visitation Day which is being hosted by Illinois American Water, Champaign, and is being held on July 26th & 27th. More information on the event can be found here.
