Welcome from the WWID Director
Dear WWID Division Members,
Welcome to the division! My name is Jon DiPietro It is an honor to serve as the Water & Wastewater Industry Division Director for 2011/2012. I'm looking forward to working with you and speaking the language of the Water & Wastewater Treatment Professional.
We are currently working hard on planning our 2012 Water/Wastewater and Automatic Controls Symposium. This year's symposium is taking place at the Holiday Inn Castle Resort in Orlando, Florida, USA on August 7-9, 2012. We have a strong techncial program that includes some 30 technical speakers, and includes a keynote address on asset management and managing the infrastructure funding gap. We also have invited speakers on cybersecurity best practices and how to design effective HMIs. Registration is now open. Check the symposium website at www.isawwsymposium.com regularly for updates, and keep an eye on your email inbox for upcoming announcement emails about the symposium.
Part of the 2012 symposium will also be the launch of our new WWAC symposium website at www.isawwsymposium.com . The new website is our new spring board for information about the conference, calls for papers, keynote/plenary speakers, and other events associated with the symposium. Additional website features will include interviews with key symposium partners, videos of past symposium presentations, and sample papers/presentations in order to make it easier for employers to see the value of our symposium. The website will also serve as a gateway for symposium registration and for interacting with other symposium attendees.
As a division we continue to have an active and lively WWID LinkedIn discussion group. LinkedIn is a social networking site that is focused on professionals and business people, with the main purpose being communication and networking. It is a very useful tool for building your personal network and for marketing your skills/business.
