Remote Attendance Webinar Series

ASDWA has scheduled a series of webinars that will take place during the 2018 ASDWA/EPA Data Management Users Conference on July 10 – 12 in Salt Lake City, UT. Our goal is to provide access to the presented materials and live conference audio [both the presenters and discussion coming from the audience], in a real-time environment. We will also attempt to broadcast the entire CMDP Training session planned for Monday, July 9th.

We ask that you register for one or more of the scheduled sessions below by COB Friday, July 6th, although you may register at any time leading up to the start of the broadcast. All webinars are scheduled for Mountain Time – you will have the option to adjust the timezone when you register. There are a total of twelve sessions that you can register for, each representing a session at the Conference; including three sessions that will capture the optional Monday, July 9th training. You must register for each session you wish to attend. All sessions will be recorded and shared after the Conference for later review. If any of the links below are broken, try to copy/paste the URLs into your browser.

IMPORTANT: By registering as a remote attendee you are agreeing to “skate at your own risk”, as ASDWA staff may be unable to provide any level of technical support during the sessions.  Due to unknown technical factors [i.e., hotel internet crashes, equipment failures, etc.], ASDWA cannot guarantee that we’ll be successful in broadcasting every scheduled session. In the event we need to cancel a session, we will try to contact all registrants to inform them. Naturally, we’ll do our best to provide a quality experience for the entire Conference and thank you ahead of time for your understanding.

Monday Training: CMDP Implementation Training (optional)

This training will allow states that are planning for implementation of CMDP to hear from states like Utah that already have CMDP in place.  Attendees will hear about the planning process, the challenges of implementation, and other experiences from those that have been there already – both drinking water program staff and IT staff.  Laboratories and water systems using CMDP will also share their perspectives.  An open discussion time will complete the day and allow for specific questions to be answered.  Anyone interested in adopting CMDP should attend this training and also listen to the webinar on CMDP basics on June 28.
Please RSVP for Monday’s training by selecting the appropriate box during the conference registration process.

Wednesday Night SDWIS Challenge: Shall We Play a Game? (optional)

Wednesday, July 11 from 7-10 PM. 

ASDWA is very excited to host this year’s SDWIS Challenge at Dave & Busters! Taking a different approach to previous years, challenge participants will be placed into small teams to compete against each other in a series of Midway games; like Daytona USA, Super Shot Basketball, Super Trivia, Pac-Man, and Skee-ball. The mixture of games in the competition gives everyone a chance to join in the fun regardless of skill level and the team-based format better facilitates the community-building spirit of our conference. A snack buffet and cash bar will be provided in a private room we have reserved onsite.

Space is limited, so we ask that Challenge Participants and Spectators please RSVP before July 2, 2018, by emailing Anthony at aderosa(at)asdwa.org. 

This sounds awesome, where do I sign up? Information for Challenge Participants:

The SDWIS Challenge is limited to 30 participants, so we kindly ask that anyone interested in playing RSVP before July 2, 2018, by emailing Anthony of ASDWA at aderosa(at)asdwa.org. There is a $10 buy-in to help cover the cost of the competition – you do not need to pay in advance. Availability is on a first come, first serve basis – after the first 30 RSVPs, a waiting list will be created – if a player drops out, we will go down the list to fill their space.

Challenge Participants will receive a $15 PowerCard that they will use for the competition, and are welcome to use the remaining balance on that card to play games after the event is finished.

I’m a Lover, Not a Gamer! Information for Challenge Spectators:

We invite all DMUC attendees to join us and cheer along your colleagues, but the space we have reserved is only so big, so we do ask that you also RSVP by July 2, 2018, so we can make adjustments to the event logistics as necessary. There is no fee to spectate and you are welcome to purchase your own PowerCards that can be used for free play throughout the arcade.

Logistics:

Dave & Busters is located at 140 S. Rio Grande St. Salt Lake City, UT 84101. It’s about a 5-minute Lyft/Uber/Cab ride from the hotel. You may also take the TRAX Blue Line (light rail) by walking over to the Courthouse Station and going 5 stops to the Planetarium Station (D&Bs is just around the corner). The light rail runs until 11:30 PM.

ASDWA has secured a private room to serve as the gathering spot for our event from 7-10 PM. Participants in the competition are asked to be at the event gathering spot by 7 PM, so we can start the SDWIS Challenge on time. At 8 PM, a snack buffet will be provided with a nacho station, chicken bites, pizza bites, and slider burgers, along with a cash bar.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact Anthony of ASDWA at aderosa(at)asdwa.org. Oh yea, and RSVP, please. 🙂
