Plan now to join us at the annual meeting and conference, where the theme is environmental stewardship in a digital age. Our moderator is Marc Pfeiffer, assistant director Bloustein Local Government Research Center.

The conference will open Tuesday evening with a networking reception from 6 to 7:30pm, followed by a busy day filled with important presentations.

Presentations include implementing a sustainable digital transformation, Impact of artificial intelligence on employers, workers, & society and more. The day should prove to have something of value for everyone in the public water/wastewater sector.

The Value of AEA in Every Type of Membership

AEA has three classes of members: Regular or authority members, municipal members, and associate members. Any organization that does business within the publicly owned water, wastewater, solid waste and recycling agency sector has a place at the AEA table. Our unique focus is the management, administrative and policy development aspects of public utility service.

Toilets are not Trash Cans. AEA echoes the message of the National Association of Clean Water Agencies, reminding New Jersey that ALL wipes should be thrown into the trash –NEVER flushed down the toilet. This is especially important during the current pandemic. Check out our video.
