November 8, 2018: Fall Tradeshow Draws 400 Water Quality Professionals

GMWEA's 25th annual Tradeshow and Conference of November 8, 2018, at the Doubletree Center in Burlington was a great success! 

Over 400 water, wastewater, and stormwater professionals, water quality technology and service providers, DPW administrators, staff from nonprofit organizations, and State agency administrators convened to attend training sessions, tour an incredible array of vendor exhibits, eat a delicious lunch, and hear speakers from Vermont and throughout New England.

Keynote speaker, Vt. Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Julie Moore, spoke about new regulations and impending challenges facing Vermont's natural waters and water quality infrastructure. The day also featured exceptional displays by 90 exhibitors, six technical trainings, guest speakers, vendor raffles, and lots of networking opportunities.

We were saddened to hear about the untimely death of New England Water Works Association executive director, Steve Ryan, at 54.  GMWEA extends its sincerest sympathies to his family, and suggests that members contribute to a fund established for the education of his surviving children, Katherine and Connor.  Click here to donate: www.gofundme.com/ryan-family-fund.
