Imagine a Day Without Water
Oct 21 all-day
Imagine a Day Without Water

No water to drink, or even to make coffee with. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or do laundry. Hospitals would close without water. Firefighters couldn’t put out fires and farmers couldn’t water their crops.

Some communities in America already know how impossible it is to try to go a day without our most precious resource: Water. But many Americans take water for granted every day. Imagine a Day Without Water 2020 is the sixth annual day to raise awareness and educate America about the value of water.

2020 Mega-Conference @ online
Nov 16 – Nov 18 all-day

Obviously, a virtual conference is different from holding the Mega-Conference as an in-person event, but it does offer certain advantages. For one thing, travel and lodging are eliminated, saving you time and money. Second, all sessions will be recorded, and will be available to all conference registrants through December 31, 2020. So if you miss a session you wanted to attend, you can still attend the course when it is convenient for you! Finally, we are planning some social events and online opportunities for you to connect with your colleagues attending the event.

In addition to the above reasons to participate in the 2020 Virtual Onsite Wastewater Mega-Conference, you will benefit from attending in the following ways:

Something for everyone. Installers…pumpers…service providers…regulators…engineers…soil scientists… designers…educators…. Regardless of your role in the onsite wastewater profession, you will find lots of useful learning opportunities:

Useful ideas. Through education sessions, and meetings with many of the industry’s most progressive and innovative companies in the exhibit hall, you can get new ideas for building your existing business.

Identify ways to expand your business. Increasing water shortages, skyrocketing costs to build and maintain central sewer infrastructure, and a wide range of applications are creating new markets for onsite wastewater. The Mega-Conference is an ideal place for you to identify new opportunities for your company to grow and expand.

Bigger really is better. While size doesn’t always matter, having lots of choices does. Having such a wide range of options for meeting your education needs is another reason to attend the Mega-Conference.

You can fulfill your continuing education requirements. In many states, the conference curriculum will qualify for credit hours in licensing or professional certification programs. We are working to secure approval for continuing education credit from all states which license or certify installers, service providers, inspectors and designers.

It’s an investment in you and your organization. If you get one good idea which translates into more business or a better way to do things, you will more than justify your cost of attending. Invest in yourself and your organization.
