ACWA Reschedules Spring Conference and Closes Offices by ACWA Staff Mar 18, 2020 Water News In response to increasing concerns over the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and new recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ACWA worked with conference venues and event partners to reschedule its Spring Conference & Exhibition and the CLE Workshop. The new dates are July 28-31. ACWA is in the process of automatically transferring all conference registrations and hotel reservations. Attendees who want to cancel their conference registration can do so without penalty by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Information about any hotel cancellations will be provided soon. ACWA appreciates your patience as the details continue to be worked out. “Many of our members rely on ACWA’s conferences to hear the latest information on vital water industry topics, network with peers, view the latest products in our exhibit hall and receive continuing education credits,” said ACWA Executive Director Dave Eggerton. “We are currently facing unprecedented times that require unprecedented measures to ensure everyone’s health and safety, but I’m hopeful that all the extraordinary measures the nation is taking will be successful by the end of July so that we can provide a superb event to our members and others in the water industry.” In related news, ACWA has closed its offices and instructed staff to work remotely. Staff will continue to be available during normal business hours via email, website, and telephone. In addition, the March 27 Board of Directors meeting will be conducted via teleconference.
