Early Bird Registration & Preliminary Agenda for March Conference Now Available

“Beyond Operations” is the theme of this year’s AEA spring conference to be held Tuesday and Wednesday, March 13-14 at Caesar’s in Atlantic City.

Presentations will largely focus on vitally important matters to help decision-makers and their staff members navigate a constantly changing world. Dave McGimpsey, creator of The Water Values podcast, will offer thoughts on leadership culled from conversations with dozens of water/wastewater professionals.

Another distinguished speaker (whose identity we will share soon!) will discuss economic and demographic trends in New Jersey. Brian Valentino, director of the AEA Environmental Professional Development Academy, will discuss techniques for holding onto good employees. Several speakers will discuss Information Technology topics, and two will discuss drinking water topics.

There will also be networking and great exhibitors AND the annual Recognition Luncheon, featuring Wave and EPDA ceremonies.
