2022 Spring Conference Recap

2022 Spring Conference Recap

French Lick Resort - French Lick, Indiana

Monday, May 16, 2022

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Spring Conference at the beautiful French Lick Resort in March! We had record numbers this year, and we couldn’t be more grateful to all of our exhibitors, speakers, sponsors, staff & board for their efforts to help make the event a success! To our attendees, we couldn't be more appreciative of you taking the time out of your busy (and very important!) schedules to take part in this event and to continue to grow & strengthen our essential industry!

We welcomed everyone on Tuesday evening with a wonderful Pre-Conference Hospitality Kick-Off Event sponsored by National Water Services at Legendz Sports Bar & Grill. Wednesday morning, we hit the ground running and participants started off to their chosen track of classes - administrative, water, or wastewater. After receiving positive feedback from last year’s staggered class sessions, we had a similar schedule planned for this year. Luckily, we were able to bring our Awards Luncheon back to honor our best of the best in the industry, as well as four outstanding students with $2,000 scholarships! ! 

Wednesday evening, we hosted a Hospitality Bowling Event onsite at Pluto’s Alley with arcade games, drinks, bowling, and pizza! It was a great time to wind down from a full day of classes while mingling with peers and friends, both new and old.

Thursday morning, everyone woke up to a delicious hot breakfast buffet before starting in on another day of classes. We also held the first round of our Regional Taste Test Competitions. The City of Fort Wayne will advance to the Best Tasting Water in Indiana Contest to be held at the Grand Wayne Convention Center during our Fall Conference. We wrapped up the conference by announcing the big Sportsman's Raffle grand prize winner. Over $5,500 in tickets were sold for the Sportsman's Raffle, the proceeds of which were donated to WaterPAC! This year's winner was Steve Vail from NineStar Connect, who walked away with a Trager Grill package worth over $2,500! Dave Harvey from Water Solutions Unlimited won the shotgun raffle. Todd Watts from the City of Austin won the all-inclusive trip for two to the NRWA conference this fall in National Harbor, Maryland, sponsored by Covalen & Midwestern Engineers, Inc. Thank you all for helping make this another fantastic Alliance event!
