There is still time to pre-register for the NYRWA Web-Based Workshop, May 18 & 19, 2021 you can download the agenda here: https://nyruralwater.org/conference.
All course topics have been approved by NYS DOH and NYS DEC. Each 1 hour course is approved for 1 contact hour for water and wastewater.
We will be offering (8) one-hour dual certified (water and wastewater) webinar style training sessions coupled with our Annual Business Meeting and a few cash drawings. Our thanks to our Associate Members who have stepped up to provide this training, showing their commitment to this association yet again!
The registration process will be more entailed this year. This will be a multi-step process. First, you must pre-register by completing the NYRWA pre-registration form in its entirety (including the billing information as it is needed to process your registration), and return with payment or your registration will not be accepted. The deadline for pre-registration is April 23, 2021. Due to all the details of this web-based workshop we cannot accept registrations after this date, so don't miss out, get those registrations in.
If you are planning to view the webinar using a smart phone or tablet, please make sure to download the GoToWebinar app in order for the webinar to properly record your participation and receive credit for attending. You will need audio for these webinars.
Each registrant must have their own device and their own unique email address to receive credit for each webinar attended (this is how your attendance is tracked and recorded for credit). The agenda with registration form can be downloaded here. We hope you all will be willing to take this leap with us, until we can meet again in 2022.
