The Annual Operators Seminar is moving online!  It may look a little different this year but we're still excited for you to join us.

Earn up to 1.2 CEUs, engage with 70+ suppliers at the virtual trade show and network with fellow attendees through the online platform. Take away a range of new perspectives, ideas and processes to bring back to your municipality!

Through the technical program, you can learn approaches to asset optimization, how to tackle challenging source water and select the appropriate rehabilitation method for manholes. You'll also hear about new facilities and upgrade procedures from the perspectives of engineers and operators. We will also have the latest updates from AWWOA and Alberta Environment & Parks.

2021 Seminar Announcement

Due to the ongoing uncertainty and continued effects of COVID-19, the AWWOA Executive Board has made the decision to move the Annual Operators Seminar to a virtual event.

Our members provide critical water services for municipalities throughout the province and with so much still unknown, it has been deemed not feasible or responsible to host an in-person gathering at this time. We recognize the Seminar provides a unique opportunity to engage with fellow operators and suppliers while also delivering substantial learning opportunities. We look forward to bringing you a great online experience so you can still accomplish these opportunities in a brand new way!

Through this virtual platform, operators will network with other attendees and suppliers through a virtual trade show and take in sessions through online streaming. Keeping our members safe while delivering an effective program will continue to be our priority as we move forward towards an online Seminar. We are excited to offer support before and during the event to guide you every step of the way!

NOTE: If you have booked a room at the Banff Park Lodge or any other hotel, please contact them directly to cancel.
