National AWWA Conference a Success
As a national conference, one may expect a large crowd with watered down workshops, presentations, and vendor exhibits; this was not the case in Dallas, TX when the AWWA hosted its 12th annual conference. The workshops, presentations, vendor exhibits, and networking provided for success stories, insight and know-how in the drinking water and wastewater fields, which can be applied in the field with rural communities. The workshops contained pertinent information on an array of technical, managerial, financial, regulatory, political, and workforce development tracks; unfortunately, it is impossible to attend all at one time! From the lakes of MN to the dry lands of Texas, this conference was a success, as it provided a deluge of information, tools, and resources for all who attended.
