AL/FL Joint Technical Training Conference

Edgewater Beach and Golf Resort
Panama City Beach, FL

In an effort to protect the health and safety of our members, FRWA and ARWA decided to postpone the Florida-Alabama Joint Technical Training Conference, originally scheduled for May 20-21, 2020. The new dates of the conference will be September 22-24, 2020.

The conference will still be held at the Edgewater Beach Resort in Panama City Beach. Due to the change in dates, the room rates will be lower starting at $104 per night (details below).

We apologize for the inconvenience that rescheduling the conference may cause, but your health and safety come first. FRWA is working with the resort to ensure that all precautions for large gatherings are in place for everyone’s health and safety. For more information on the health and safety precautions that will be taken at the conference, please visit the FRWA website.

We will still have training opportunities in both water and wastewater sessions, plus an Exhibit Hall filled with products and services of interest.

Attendees. Registration is open for the new dates! If you have registered and plan to attend, there is nothing else to do.  Registration fees will remain the same.  If you have not registered, go to the registration page.  We will continue to monitor the situation and keep an eye on the changing landscape for large events to ensure that public health is preserved. We look forward to enjoying our time on the beach with you in September when things are better. Until then, follow the established public health guidelines and keep doing an amazing job at providing Florida and Alabama with safe clean drinking water.
