Water Week 2019: Your Best Opportunity to Impact National Water Policy in the New Year
Your best opportunity to influence national water policy in 2019 is fast approaching! Water Week 2019 is March 31 – April 6, and its anchor event, the National Water Policy Fly-In, will convene April 3-4 in Washington, DC. Building off the momentum of major advocacy wins in 2018—such as the bipartisan passage of the America’s Water Infrastructure Act—it’s crucial that policy-makers hear directly from YOU about the challenges to your utility and community. Mark your calendars now and save the date!!
Fifty years after the Cuyahoga River fire and the birth of the Clean Water Act (CWA), NACWA’s upcoming 2019 Winter Conference
will take a deep look into the progress of the CWA, it’s nexus with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), and will ask whether the intersection between these foundational statutes is breeding long-term conflict or presenting opportunities for collaboration for the entire water sector. The Conference
is scheduled to convene February 5-8, 2019, in Albuquerque, NM.
Save the dates and don’t miss NACWA’s 2019 Conference offerings. For the first time ever, NACWA will be offering early bird registration for our conferences later this month. Don't miss your opportunity to meet with clean water colleagues, stay up-to-date on legislative, regulatory, and legal developments and save money while you do it! We are excited to see you at our 2019 Conferences.

NACWA Connect on Hiatus
Beginning this week, NACWA Connect will be on hiatus until the new year—resuming its bi-weekly function of informing membership on January 9, 2019. As its name defines, the Connect is designed to help Association members remain connected with NACWA, and more importantly, to each other. We hope you celebrate with us another great year of Association news, activities and happenings as chronicled by the Connect, and look forward as well to an even greater year of the same in 2019!
