Immediate Release – December 31, 2020 – NYRWA
In an abundance of caution due to the continuing situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, both here in New York State and nationwide, our Board of Directors has decided to cancel our 2021 Annual Technical Training Workshop & Exhibition at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona scheduled for May 17-19, 2021. The Board feels that we cannot, in good conscience and in consideration of all state and federal directives, continue with a conference that will bring together so many industry representatives and operators who are essential workers within their communities. We plan to return to an in-person conference at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona May 23-25, 2022.
NYRWA will be hosting a 2-day web-based conference May 18-19, 2021. We anticipate providing 8 contact hours for both our water and wastewater operators. We are planning (4) one-hour webinars, each day that will provide dual credits (water & wastewater). We plan to kick things off Tuesday, May 18, 2021, beginning at 8:00 a.m. with opening comments immediately followed by our Annual Business Meeting for our membership. Starting at 9:15 a.m. we will begin the 1-hour training sessions. NYRWA will provide (2) cash drawings throughout the 2-day conference and will also provide a shirt to all attendees who register for the entire conference. More information will be forthcoming soon, watch your mail for registration information. We hope you will consider joining us for this event!
Thank you all for your consideration and understanding. This is a difficult decision, but one we feel is necessary at this time. We look forward to seeing all of you May 18-19, 2021 for our web-based 2021 Annual Technical Training Workshop!
Stay safe and healthy.
Jamie Herman, CEO
