Continuing Education Hours / Sessions

This conference offers three tracks to meet your needs - water, wastewater & administrative. You can, however, choose to go to classes in different tracks. In order to receive credit for attending classes, you will need to have your name badge scanned prior to each class and at the end of each class. You will be able to earn up to 10 continuing education hours for both water & wastewater licenses. Partial credit will not be given if you come into a class that's already in progress.

Full Event Schedule will be out by Friday, October 7!

 

Additional Admin Classes

In addition to our water and wastewater sessions, utility managers, board members, clerks and office personnel will have several administration sessions from which to choose. 

 

Name Badges / Registration Packets

This year, we will be mailing your name badges in advance of the conference in an effort to cut down on congregation at the information desk. CEU forms will be available in the classrooms. Also, a limited number of printed programs will be available on-site throughout the venue. So, make sure to download the conference mobile app & bring your name tag with you to the event.

 

Mobile App

We have a NEW Mobile App!

Make sure you download the Conference App! The app has become very important over the years. It will provide you with the latest updates about our event, keeping you informed and connected. Use this app to access resources, network with other attendees, and share your experience at our event. To download the app, search "Alliance Conference" in the App Store or in the Google Play Store. 

 

Prizes & Gifts

Included with your name badge will be several tickets. One will be for you to claim your free conference t-shirt in the Exhibit Hall during breaks at the Alliance booth. Another will be a free ticket you can use for the Sportsman's Raffle. The third one will be for a drawing for a Kindle Fire. Kindle Fire ticket should be deposited in the marked bins Thursday morning during breakfast.

 

Sportman's Raffle

The Sportsman's Raffle will take place in the exhibit hall. These will be the same amazing prizes that you have become accustomed to at our conferences for the WaterPAC Sportsman's Raffle. Make sure to redeem your free ticket from your registration packet! Because you need to be present to claim the grand prize, we will draw another entry if it's not claimed.

 

Best Tasting Water in Indiana Taste Test

Regional taste test winners will compete for the Best Tasting Water in Indiana during the luncheon on Wednesday, October 26th. A panel of judges will be selected to rate samples based on taste, odor, and clarity. The winner will receive a news release to appear in the Hoosier Pipeline Magazine, as well as an all-inclusive trip to Washington, DC to compete in the NRWA Great American Water Taste Test 2023 - not to mention some pretty awesome bragging rights!
