This year’s WWEMA 49th Washington Forum will be held April 26-28, 2023 in conjunction with Water Week 2023. This is WWEMA’s annual legislative, regulatory, and policy meeting that directly connects our members, attendees, and invited guests to leaders in the water industry and Government including Congress and EPA. Want to learn what the Biden Administration’s new regulations and economic policies mean for your business and what’s next? Have questions about how to comply with the Buy America requirements in the new Bipartisan Infrastructure Law? Concerned these new requirements might affect your ability to access funding, have your products included in new projects, or increase costs and delay project schedules? Want to ensure your voice is heard and have real impact on helping shape policies and guidance that ensures your company’s success? Hear from the Experts! Network with Industry Leaders!

Everyone, members and non-members alike, is invited to join us for this year’s WWEMA 49th Washington Forum as we hear from leaders in our industry and Government who are at the forefront of these changes.
