DEAR WEST VIRGINIA AWWA MEMBERS
WEA/AWWA WV JOINT BOARD MEETING IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE 2023 CONFERENCE WILL BE HELD
May 21-24, 2023 AT OGLEBAY
WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO SEE EVERYONE IN 2023 AND THE CONFERENCE WILL BE THE BEST YET!
Annual Conference Overview
Each year, the West Virginia Section of the American Water Works Association (WVAWWA) and the West Virginia Water Environment Association (WVWEA) host a joint conference with workshops and professional sessions, competitions, and the latest technologies in the exhibit hall. The annual conference is always a great opportunity for professional development and networking with others from across the state.
2023 ANNUAL JOINT WATER CONFERENCE
WV-AWWA & WV-WEA Members and Families:
On behalf of the West Virginia Section of the American Water Works Association and the West Virginia Water Environment Association Board of Directors, please allow us to extend a warm welcome and invitation to you to attend the 2023 Annual Joint Water Conference. This year’s conference will take place at Oglebay Resort and Conference Center in Wheeling.
We are changing things up this year! Instead of kicking off with golf, the festivities will begin on Sunday, May 21, 2023, with our annual picnic from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Hess Shelter. We will be having food, drinks, cornhole, live music and raffle prizes at the picnic. The Terry Smith Memorial Golf
Tournament is now scheduled for Monday after lunch. For those that don’t golf, we’ll be hosting a networking event Monday after lunch, with games and prizes!
The Program Committees from the WEA and AWWA have revamped our technical session schedule and added a third track of training classes on Monday and Tuesday to include operator training. We’ll be providing over 20 WVBPH approved CEH credit opportunities for water and wastewater, with
certificates at the conclusion of each seminar session. We are also going to offer additional training and CEH credit opportunities on Wednesday of the conference!
We also anticipate a full exhibit hall with the latest water and wastewater industry related technology displayed and expert technical representatives to present their information. This year the exhibit hall will be more accessible! Vendor tables will be set up in the dining room, so conference attendees have access to the displays during breakfasts and lunches throughout the conference. Their participation helps make our conference possible each year through their generous support, so please check out all they have to offer.
Tuesday evening, we will host our annual Awards Banquet where we will recognize water and wastewater industry leaders for their unwavering dedication to protection of public health and the environment. We will celebrate with dinner, drinks, and some storytelling!
The conference will conclude on Wednesday, May 24, 2023 with the Board Meetings – or our final training classes for those that are interested in additional CEH credits.
We encourage you to come and take advantage of everything that this year’s conference has to offer – great food, fun, fellowship, professional development, and the latest technologies in the exhibit hall.
See you at Oglebay!
