ASDWA’s Annual Conference is Going Virtual

Out of an abundance of caution related to the continuing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, ASDWA is converting the October 18-21, 2021 Annual Conference to a virtual conference and is now offering registration at no cost.

A surge in cases across the U.S., uncertainties surrounding organizations’ travel bans and restrictions, challenges in debating and implementing potential onsite safety protocols such as vaccine/mask mandates or social distancing, and the emergence of the highly contagious Delta variant led ASDWA to make this difficult decision for the health and safety of our attendees and staff. Although we would prefer to see all of you in person and everyone is suffering from fatigue from the two-dimensional experience, we have developed an agenda to ensure that the shift to virtual still provides unique opportunities to learn about, and to discuss, the critical drinking water issues that we are all facing.

More information, including the block agenda and new registration form, is now available on the ASDWA 2021 Annual Conference web page. Please note the following dates and information for registering to attend the virtual sessions.

  • Monday and Tuesday, October 18-19, 2021: General registration is available for the opening session and topic sessions on Lead Service Line Inventories, California SAFER, PFAS, and Workforce.
  • Wednesday and Thursday, October 20-21, 2021: Registration is limited for the State-EPA Roundtable (for states and EPA only) on October 20 and the States-Only Roundtable on October 21.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We look forward to meeting again in person in 2022 and to meeting with everyone virtually next month!
