Please Plan Now to Attend ASDWA’s March 2012 Member Meeting

As mentioned in a prior Weekly Update article, ASDWA’s Member Meeting will take place on March 12-14, 2012 at the Hilton Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia.  For this year’s meeting, we’re pleased to be able to partner with the Association of Clean Water Administrators (ACWA), and the Ground Water Protection Council (GWPC) in holding some joint sessions — since those organizations will be holding their traditional “spring” meetings (or, Board meeting, in the case of GWPC) at the same time and location.  For your planning purposes, here’s an early look at the general layout of the agenda:

  • Joint Session with ASDWA, ACWA, and GWPC on Topics of Mutual Interest
  • Data Management Issues (SDWIS Next Gen)/Compliance Tracking (ERP/ETT)
