About the WAMC

Heading into its 19th year, the Water Asset Management Conference was first launched in 2001 with the goal of convening practitioners in the fields of water, wastewater and stormwater management to explore issues, trends, best practices and new technologies in this ever-evolving arena. In 2018, the Water Asset Management Conference changed to an online format to make content more easily accessible those in the utility sector.

The conference is hosted entirely in an online format, allowing attendees the flexibility to log in to view single or multiple presentations, all without leaving the office. The best part? Registration is FREE for all attendees!

How It Works

The conference is broken into a two-part series – one in May and the other in November-December 2019. Each series will feature four weekly sessions. Each session lasts two hours and will feature presentations from leading experts on water asset management topics and will provide both theoretical and practical information. Each presentation will conclude with live Q&A with presenters.

Once you register, you can log in to watch any session within the series. If you miss a presentation, don’t worry – you can view recorded, archived versions anytime. CEUs will also be available for an additional cost.
