You are invited to join us this year for WWEMA’s 50th Washington Forum that will be held April 10-12, 2024 in conjunction with Water Week 2024 in Washington, DC. 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, the Department of Commerce, and EPA. We will have a terrific line-up of speakers who will address everything from EPA’s priorities, to Buy America requirements, the economy, water research needs, the outlook for legislation and tackling tough issues like inflation and the debt ceiling, as well as information on helping businesses grow through exports. Everyone, WWEMA members and non-members alike, is invited to join us for this year’s WWEMA 50th Washington Forum. Come join your colleagues in the water community and learn about changes that are impacting us today and how we can effectively engage and respond to them.
