The industry’s current issues will take center stage in California later this month as the city of Anaheim hosts the 51st annual Pacific Water Quality Association (PWQA) convention and tradeshow. With the unique challenges currently facing our industry—especially on the West Coast—this event is one not to miss.
Held Oct. 14 to 17 at the Sheraton Park Hotel at the Anaheim Resort (adjacent to Disneyland), the event already has more than 40 registered exhibitors and a full schedule of valuable education seminars lined up. There will also be plenty of networking opportunities throughout the week, from the annual golf tournament on Oct. 15 to the 2008 Banquet Dinner, Industry Awards and Live Auction on Oct. 16.
The unique schedule of this tradeshow—with educational seminars before and after tradeshow hours, not during—allows one not to miss any events due to scheduling conflicts.
Some educational seminars on Thursday, Oct. 16, to consider when planning your itinerary include:
This year’s PWQA annual meeting will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 4 p.m. The association has invited Lobbyist Pete Conaty to speak about grassroots efforts and what California’s proposed water softener ban, AB 2270, means to the water treatment industry.
The event will also offer a WQA Water Fundamentals Seminar on Tuesday, Oct. 14, presented by Joseph Harrison, P.E., CWS VI, technical director of the WQA, and WQA certification exams for water dealers. Tradeshow hours run from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 16 and from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 17.
