WEF Is for Water Quality People

Last year was a banner year at WEF, and I think 2014 is shaping up to be even better, when it comes to providing water professionals with the best technical training and education available today. I am continually amazed at the educational opportunities that WEF offers and that so many of them are offered at low or no cost to our membership and do not require travel. Sure, there is an impressive list of conferences on topics ranging from green infrastructure to odors and pollutants, unmatched networking opportunities, access to some of the field’s most innovative thinking, and award-winning publications, not to mention programs that build awareness of the value of water and advocate for science-based regulation and legislation but there are no-charge webcasts hosted by experts in the field and cutting-edge online learning programs that can accommodate the tightest training budget -- just a few reasons why WEF membership is so important.


As a member for 27 years, I’ve seen how the Federation has taken great effort to understand and meet the needs of water quality professionals; and as partners with WEF Member Associations (MAs) work together to provide quality training for the members. Whether your career is in day to day plant operations, collection system or biosolids management or industry research and development, you have access to sound and practical information as well as cutting edge technology with instructors who have “been there; done that”.


WEF strategic objectives--to drive innovation, enrich the expertise of water professionals, and build public awareness of the value of water--continue to result in outstanding programs. One great example is WEFTEC, the world’s largest annual water quality conference and exhibition. Our distinguished Program Committee is developing another world-class technical program for WEFTEC 2014, and I’ll be among the thousands of water professionals reaping the benefits at cutting-edge sessions this fall.


If you are looking to build a successful career in water and help protect public health and the environment, I can speak from experience, WEF is for you. This will be another terrific year at the Federation, please consider joining us today!
