Share |

Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash - January 2013

Theresa O'Grady
Vice Chair

Once again it’s time for WATERCON. In some ways this year has gone pretty fast, and in other ways it has gone very slow. It is hard to believe that it has been a year since I was elected and seated as Vice-Chair at last year’s conference.

Many people have been working diligently the past few months to put together a great program for WATERCON 2013. There are a lot of new things planned, as well continuing several conference traditions. Here are some highlights:

· Monday, March 18, 2013 – New this year, the Exhibit Hall opens on Monday at 1:00 p.m. and there are Technical Sessions for Potable Water on Monday from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (So, those of you who usually travel to Springfield on Monday, come down a little earlier in the day. For those of you who don’t typically arrive until Tuesday, consider arriving a day earlier to get more conference for the same registration fee!)

· Tuesday, March 19, 2013 – Once again it is Operator and Small Systems Day on Tuesday. Operators can attend on Tuesday for only $50. Also on Tuesday, and new to the conference this year, is the student Career Fair. Students can attend the 2-hour event free of charge.

· Wednesday, March 20, 2013 – Once again Wednesday is Young Professionals Day. If you are less than 35 years of age, or new to the water industry in the last 10 years, you are considered a Young Professional. Young and old professionals alike are invited to participate in the Young Professionals Program, Career Panel and Bags Competition. Also note that the Exhibit Hall closes at noon on Wednesday to get the room ready for the Meter Madness and Tapping Contest that start at 5:00 p.m.

· Thursday, March 21, 2013 – Wake up early to join me in attending the New Officer and Awards Breakfast and then stick around for the Regulatory Update at 8:30 a.m.

I have just highlighted a few of the events each day. For a comprehensive list of activities, consult the Pre-Conference Program posted on the ISAWWA website at

As I mentioned earlier, we have planned a great program, and we hope you are able to attend! If you have any questions about WATERCON, please feel free to contact me or ISAWWA Section staff.

See you in Springfield on the 18th!
