2017 AOWMA Convention and Trade Show – Draft Schedule

There is plenty to see and do at the 2017 AOWMA Convention and Trade Show.  The schedule includes several workshops along with technical, research and education sessions all designed to increase your knowledge level and help you in the upcoming installation season, while the accompanying trade show and social events will allow you to network with suppliers and other onsite wastewater stakeholders.

The convention schedule continues to be developed, however the draft schedule provides a preliminary look at how the convention is being structured and will allow delegates to begin planning their attendance at convention.  Check the website regularly for updates and changes to this schedule over the next few weeks!
