TRANSFORMING THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Dear IMS AWWA members, friends, and supporters,

In an industry such as ours, we of all people know that safety comes first. Due to the ongoing risk of COVID-19 and after much consideration among our board, staff and volunteers, we have decided to transform our upcoming fall Annual Conference into the 2020 H2O Virtual Conference.

As much as we will miss seeing all our attendees, presenters, exhibitors, sponsors and students in person, we are working diligently to provide you with an exceptional online conference. The Intermountain Section recognizes the importance and value of networking in-person, and we strive to provide that value through our comprehensive online conference platform. We are researching and brainstorming hard to make sure it’s also fun!

Although this throws us a little off balance, we see this as an opportunity to evolve into an organization that can navigate difficult times and ensure that our members are still getting valuable resources and meaningful industry connections despite the circumstances.

An online conference also has the benefits of:

- No travel or hotel costs
- More time at home with family
- No health risks due to lack of exposure to others
- Reduced conference costs means more employees can attend
- A chance to learn new innovative technology

Updates regarding the new date(s) and conference structure will be posted on our Facebook page, Twitter page, website, and will be distributed via email. Also, if you need any physical IMS mail to be rerouted to your home address instead of your office, please email Ali@ims-awwa.org with your home address and she will update that in your IMS online profile.

We look forward to taking this next step into the future with you – stay tuned!

Alane E. Boyd, Executive Director
