Need Help Gaining Approval to attend the 2020 Annual Conference & Exhibition?
Due to reduced budgets and increased expenditure scrutiny, the AZ Water Association recognizes it is no easy task to secure approval for a training event. Here are several tips to guide you in your request for approval to attend next year’s Conference:
Your organization is investing in you; provide details about what you will bring back from the event.
What sessions will you attend and what immediate impact will they have on your work?
What vendors will you visit on the exhibit floor and how will this help your organization?
Which experts will you have access to and what knowledge would you bring back to share with your organization?
With the huge variety of focus areas, the AZ Water Annual Conference & Exhibition is a great way to earn CEU’s and PDH’s.
