On March 19, WEF and the co-host associations made the decision to cancel the National Water Policy Fly-In (April 27-28) in Washington, D.C.
WEF always prioritizes the health and safety of attendees, exhibitors, and vendors at our events. We have been closely monitoring the situation with coronavirus, including information from the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and state and local health authorities. Recent developments and the importance of minimizing the spread of the illness were key factors in our decision to cancel the event.
Despite this unfortunate but necessary need to cancel the Fly-In, WEF still wants its members to be engaged on important federal policy issues. Please look for a future email from WEF that will provide ways for members to engage with their Members of Congress and convey the message for increased funding for water infrastructure.
Additionally, WEF’s Water Advocates grassroot program allows all WEF members and the public to write Congress at any time regarding the calls-to-action posted on the site, such as the current call-to-action to Congress urging support for water infrastructure funding be included in any coronavirus emergency relief and recovery package that includes funding for municipal infrastructure. Additional information will soon be added to the event website for your reference.
Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time and for your continued support of WEF.
