Operator School 2021
We had all hoped that we would be past the COVID-19 pandemic by now. We all lost a lot during the pandemic, but, in many ways, things are improving. Some aspects of life have started to return to normal, and, hopefully, things continue to improve.
This brings us to Operator School for 2021. After months of meetings, planning and re-planning, and even though there are some items that need nailed down, the Operator School Committee is excited to announce that:
THERE WILL BE AN OPERATOR SCHOOL THIS YEAR.
We plan to have the classes start early September, and plan to be finished by Thanksgiving. At this time, the classes will be located in the following areas: Evansville, Jeffersonville, Indianapolis, Kokomo, Fort Wayne, Mishawaka, and Michigan City. The exact days, times and locations are being finalized.
Look for additional details and registration forms towards the end of July. Everything will be posted on the Indiana Section website, and we will plan to have e-mails sent out to the membership. Scholarship applications for Operator School 2021 will also be posted on the website. Scholarship info will be sent, along with the Operator School materials, to the membership.
Thank you for your patience as we worked through this. Please let me know if you have any questions at cjohnsen@mcwaterdept.com .
