Water Quality Association issues call for presentations for 2019 Convention
Proposals for the Las Vegas event accepted through June 29, 2018

 LISLE, Ill. (April 26, 2018) – The Water Quality Association (WQA) is calling for presentation proposals for its 2019 Convention & Exposition on April 23-26, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nev.

 Potential speakers are invited to submit proposals on technical topics such as treatment innovations or water-related legislative issues, or on small business operations topics such as consumer trends or conflict resolution. The call also is open for potential presenters to suggest their own topics, and dealers are invited to submit proposals on interesting or puzzling applications they’ve worked on.

 “Things happen in the world of water on a daily basis, and we’re always looking for the latest,” said WQA Professional Certification & Training Director Tanya Lubner, PhD. “You really learn best from your colleagues and those that have experience.”

 While original works are strongly encouraged for the presentations, topics modified from materials previously presented at other venues may be submitted. Manufacturers with product on the market must be registered exhibitors to participate in presentations. Preference is given to WQA members.

 All technical educational presentations must avoid reference to specific manufacturers and brands. Commercial messages are inappropriate and will not be accepted.

 Proposals are due by June 29 and must be submitted online using the form and guidelines found at

 Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis and in the order in which they are received. Schedule space is limited.

Since 1959, the WQA Gold Seal certification program has been certifying products that contribute to the safe consumption of water.
