It is hard to believe, but preparations for WaterCon 2013 have been ongoing for quite some time. The Education Committee has been working with the Small Systems Committee to develop the Operators Track at this event. The focus of this track will be the future of the water industry. I am very excited about the topics and the speakers that are already committed to presenting. I am certainly looking forward to this conference, and I hope you are as well.
As a Committee we are also looking for various "hot topics” in the industry that can be addressed in our 2013 Training Schedule. We are looking for topics in engineering, distribution, supply, laboratory, management, and other categories. Your input in identifying these topics is critical for our Committee to plan an effective Training Schedule. Please make contact with any member of the Committee to help us identify these "hot topics.”
If you are interested in finding out more about the Education Committee, we invite you to join one of our meetings or to discuss it with Lisa Hoffhines, any Committee member, or myself.
I want to thank the members of our Committee for their hard work and involvement. I also want to thank those of you who have provided input and insight for the topics covered in the Training Schedule. Your input makes the program more valuable to all of the Section's members.
Please do not ever hesitate to contact Lisa Hoffhines or myself with your suggestions, comments, or if you are a utility or organization that would like to host a seminar. We can be reached by email at Lisa@isawwa.org or firstname.lastname@example.org.
