Stretch Your Education Abstract Submission
Share |

WATERCON2014 (Springfield, IL March 17 through 20, 2014) is offering current exhibitors an exceptional opportunity to educate attendees and to share your organization’s unique expertise. Illinois Section AWWA Education Committee and MAC have collaborated to develop the "Stretch Your Education” program, not only to encourage exhibit hall foot traffic but also to provide additional attendee CEU opportunities this coming year.

Deadline for "Stretch Your Education” abstract submissions: Monday, January 20, 2014

To meet Illinois EPA training credit requirements, exhibitor presentations must comply with the following criteria:

  • Upon selection, presenters will be assigned to one of two presentation slots on either Tuesday, March 18 starting at 1:00pm or Wednesday, March 19 starting at 9:10am.
  • Presentations will be 15 minutes each. Each presentation will be offered four times in a row, over a one hour and ten minute period, to four different groups of attendees. Presentations will be held at your exhibit booth.
  • Attendees will not exceed 6 per individual session.
  • A monitor will be provided by the committee and present to handle CEU certification.
  • Attendees will progress through four 15 minute presentations to earn 1 CEU credit.
  • Per Illinois EPA training credit criteria, presentation topics that are exclusively wastewater do not qualify for CEU credit. Presentations with topics that comprise both water and wastewater can be accepted.
  • PowerPoint and/or video presentations will not be accepted. While either can be employed as presentation support, the committee encourages hands on demonstrations.
  • No "sales pitches” are permitted. All information is to be generic and cannot be referenced to the explicit exhibitor product/service.
  • All exhibitors interested in providing a presentation must fill out form below with their abstract for consideration for the committee’s review and CEU approval.
  • While this presentation style may seem well suited for those displaying equipment, all WATERCON2014 exhibitors are encouraged to exercise their imagination to participate.
  • After the presentation itinerary is firm, "Stretch Your Education” will be promoted to attendees prior to WATERCON2014 and during registration.
