2020 Spring Conference Planning Committee

Save the Date! August 2020 | #AWRA2020 Goes Virtual

We are excited to announce that AWRA will hold its 2020 Spring Conference as planned over three weeks this August. Due to extraordinary circumstances, we will be 'meeting' completely virtually. Stay tuned for more details on registration price and program. The conference planning committee is working to format the program into a virtual experience. All speakers/presenters will be contacted as the next step. Please be patient as we are working very hard to set up the necessary tools we need before we contact speakers/presenters.
