Preliminary Program 

Our Technical Program Committee has been hard at work preparing what we believe is our best program yet!  NEW THIS YEAR is an educational tract specifically geared towards our city and town mayors, managers, utility board members, and councils.  We encourage participation of our mayors, managers, board members and councils to inform them of upcoming issues facing their utilities. We also invite them to stay for our evening competitions reception and then our legislative reception where they can meet with their state representative.  To view the preliminary program please follow the link below (note- this schedule is preliminary and subject to change).
