ASDWA & EPA Cohost the Next Joint National Capacity Development and Operator Certification Workshop

It’s been two years since state and EPA staff from the Capacity Development and Operator Certification programs joined with their training and assistance providers to meet in Atlanta to share success stories and discuss issues of mutual concern.

Now, it’s time to do it again!  Please join ASDWA and EPA’s Sustainable Systems Team in Dallas, Texas for the 2015 Joint National Capacity Development and Operator Certification Workshop.  Workshop dates are December 8-10, 2015.  We will be meeting and staying at the Marriott City Center Hotel with a special group rate of $125/night (Federal per diem rate).

This year’s workshop theme is Roadmap to the Future: Building Sustainability and Integrating Resiliency.  Sessions of the workshop will include how Capacity Development and Operator Certification programs and staff work together, methods for building resiliency into sustainability, and best practices for partnerships and collaboration between the two programs and their partners.  The workshop will provide the opportunity for participants to share success stories and brainstorm new ideas on improving program functions.  There is no cost to participate; however, you must register in advance.

SPECIAL NOTE:  All are invited to attend, but please note that the first morning (8:30-Noon on December 8) is reserved for discussions between state and EPA partners only.  Everyone is welcome to participate in all other portions of the Workshop.
