WWEMA will hold its 47th Washington Forum as a virtual meeting during Water Week 2021, on April 27-29, 2021. We are pleased to announce in addition to a full independent WWEMA program, we will offer a Water Associations’ Water Week 2021 Joint Session to meeting attendees. This session will allow you to join with other colleagues in the water sector to hear from senior EPA officials and Members of Congress regarding their priorities and the legislative and regulatory outlook for 2021 and beyond. Separate registration for this session is required. To register, go HERE.

The Washington Forum 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. This year’s theme is Harnessing the Power of Change. As we slowly emerge from a long year of lockdowns and uncertainly, our work, and indeed our industry has been changed and transformed. We have learned to do business differently, learned how to navigate every known communication platform, and learned the value of personal and professional relationships and our need for face-to-face interactions. As we move forward, we need to evaluate many of these changes and assess whether some of them may become a more permanent part of our day-to-day business. We also are experiencing change with a new Administration, a new Congress, and new priorities for our economy and Nation. Everyone, members and non-members alike, are invited to join us for this year’s WWEMA Virtual 47th Washington Forum as we hear from leaders in our industry and Government who are at the forefront of these changes.


A preliminary program and schedule of events for the WWEMA Virtual 47th Washington Forum including the Water Week 2021 Joint Session is accessible HERE. Our keynote speaker is John Manzella. John is a world-recognized speaker, author, and nationally syndicated columnist on business, trade, labor, and the latest economic trends. He will examine U.S. trade relationships, analyze business sectors, and explore critical issues involving labor, skills, automation, and immigration. Most importantly, he will share his invaluable insight by offering survival strategies to improve business competitiveness and reduce risks by shedding light on what’s ahead. You can learn more about our distinguished speaker HERE.


Our program will also feature Networking Roundtables that will allow meeting participants to engage in an information exchange about critical and timely water issues. Additional networking opportunities will be provided within the Whova meeting platform allowing participants to connect with each other. To get the most from this feature, you are encouraged to complete your personal profile listing your company, role, and other relevant information.

Registration for one attendee is $129, for up to five attendees it is $250, and a package of up to 10 attendees is $450. To register your company staff and guests, go HERE.
