The Virginia Lakes and Watersheds Association (VLWA) will hold its next annual conference on March 3-5, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Koger Center in Richmond. As was the case for 2012, I expect we will completely fill the technical program and the exhibit hall. We had over 300 participants, 34 exhibitors, and 116 presenters – we didn’t have room for additional exhibitors or presenters! If you would like to participate next year, it’s never too early to start your planning. Please visit the VLWA website at www.vlwa.org for more information on presenting and exhibiting at the conference.
We have already lined up one of our keynote speakers. On Monday, March 4, Andrew Dinsmore, Stormwater Team Leader at US EPA Region III, will discuss the EPA’s MS4 audit process. This is extremely important to our municipal representatives and their consultants and I am grateful that Andy is willing to make the trip down from Philadelphia to meet with us.
