Fall Conference Schedule


COVID-19 has had a major impact on our ability to provide training and hold conferences.  Many factors, including the Governor Proclamations, federal and state agencies guidance, facility requirements, etc. affect how we plan, develop and hold training events.  Our initial planning for the 2020 Fall Conference is based on the information, restrictions and projections that were in place as of June 2020.  All of these factors are subject to change.  We will continue to monitor all of the factors and make adjustments as necessary.  We will hold two separate conferences for Water and Wastewater at each location with Vendor Booths limited to the first 22 exhibit registrations for each conference.  Your booth space is limited to two company representatives.  Additional booth attendees will NOT be allowed.
