*In-person attendance in mandatory assuming things will still be held in person.  In 2020 and 2021, the in-person workshop in Alexandria had to be converted into fully virtual events.  If we must do the same in 2022, then we will strive to keep the virtual dates over the same time-period.

"With an increasing level of challenges facing the water industry, water leaders need to work with a vast array of professionals.  This program introduced me to other water professionals that I do not get a chance to work with on a normal basis.  If you want to be able to expand your network and work with others to solve water problems, then I would recommend you apply to this program!"
