ACE 2017 was incredible this year in Philadelphia (June 11 – 14).  The Exhibition Hall was a site to behold.  I recently learned from the Chair’s report that over 11,000 people attended the 3-day event.  We had a great showing at the opening session from the Intermountain Section with over 65 in attendance.  Dave Pitcher received the Honorary Member award on behalf of Rick Wheadon, and Scott Paxman was also recognized with the George Warren Fuller award.  The technical sessions were centered on timely topics with substantive content.  How do I describe in a few sentences, the premier total water solutions conference that is AWWA?  I participated in a Committee meeting as well and met members from other Sections who all confirmed my experience.  If you have an opportunity to attend ACE in the future, I highly recommend it.  You will not forget your experience.  In 2018, Las Vegas, NV will be the host City.

Now, we have our own Annual Conference to prepare for this Fall.  We are very thrilled to be going to Sun Valley, ID.  Please make sure you are planning your schedules now.  The theme of the Conference will be “Invest in Your Community – Just Add Water”.  Come prepared to acquire new stories to add to your water career experience, meet new people and learn new ideas.  We will welcome you back for multiple keynote speakers, sound Technical Sessions, loyal Exhibitors, and remarkable outdoor activities that will allow you to experience again the beauty of the Wood River Valley.  And most of all, reconnect with your friends and associates in AWWA.  We are grateful to our generous Sponsors who make this event possible.  I look forward to seeing many of you there for a worthwhile experience, October 11th – 13th in Sun Valley, ID.
