March Madness at PRWA

PRWA March Madness Tournament of Speakers Bracket

Along with all the basketball madness happening in March, our four speakers at the 2018 Pennsylvania Rural Water Association’s Annual Conference (PRWA) conference have a tournament of their own – going head-to-head with one another, competing for audience members! They’ve gathered their monikers and mascots and have their game faces on, ready to take the stage to inform and dazzle their audiences. If you’re at PRWA this year, support your favorite(s) by attending their presentation. Foam fingers optional.

See below for the speaker and topic line-ups, and fear not; there are no losers or bracket busters in this tournament. The real winners are the folks learning about these pertinent water and wastewater topics covered by our team. If you’re looking for more: see the full conference schedule.

And feel free to stop by our booth (#40) anytime during the conference. Our competitors will be rotating through, eager to hear about any lingering challenges you’re facing, or just to meet new industry friends.
