WWEMA is committed to advancing the water and wastewater industry and the economic viability of its members. To achieve that mission, WWEMA holds a number of conferences and events each year to inform and educate, and connect and create opportunities for our members. These conferences bring together thought leaders, policy experts, and key decision-makers to address a multitude of cutting-edge issues and provide opportunities to learn, share knowledge, and network. Currently, WWEMA holds the following conferences:
The WWEMA Washington Forum is the premier policy event for water and wastewater technology manufacturers and service providers, offering face-to-face discussion with regulators and legislators as well insights on the economic, trade, and market conditions affecting the industry. Typically held in April in Washington, DC, this meeting is open to members and non-members.
Typically held in May in the Midwest, this 1.5 day meeting offers finance and contract administration staff an opportunity to learn from experts as well as colleagues on topics such as terms and conditions, negotiation techniques, corporate policies, and more.
The Presidents Council offers top executives an opportunity to share issues, concerns, and best practices in a small-group setting. The meeting is limited to 20-25 executives and is only open to those who have profit-and-loss responsibility and hold an executive title such as President, Chief Executive Officer, Owner, General Manager, or Business Unit Vice President. This one-day fly-in meeting is typically held in September and is exclusive to WWEMA-member companies.
Typically held in November in southern U.S. locations, this members-only meeting addresses management and operational issues and trends and offers opportunities to explore business development in a relaxed resort setting.
