Registration now open for WaterSmart Innovations Spring 2021 Webinar Series
Officials with the WaterSmart Innovations Conference and Exposition have opened registration for a series of webinars scheduled for four consecutive Wednesdays beginning April 7.
The WSI Spring Webinar Series will be presented by urban water-efficiency experts working in a range of disciplines, covering topics including Conservation and Incentive Programs, Marketing and Outreach, Special Topics, and Education. Three half-hour sessions will be presented each week; registration is free.
The COVID-19 epidemic forced the cancellation of last year’s in-person WSI conference and expo. However, the conference—complete with a full slate of professional sessions, as well as pre-show workshops, an expo hall, and technical tours—is on track to return to Las Vegas Oct. 6-7.

A Note of Gratitude
We at WaterSmart Innovations would like to extend our thanks to everyone who participated in our first-ever WSI Webinar Series this fall.
While the coronavirus epidemic prevented us from gathering in person this year, both presenters and participants gleaned invaluable knowledge from the free webinar sessions, held each Wednesday over a six-week period from Sept. 23 to Oct. 28.
“Thank you for adapting to the virtual environment,” said Andrew Erdmann with the City of Santa Fe, N.M. “Lots of great information offered in small, bite-sized pieces!”
Each weekly session offered three half-hour webinars addressing such topics as water=-smart landscaping, water loss, conservation, and public education.
“I appreciate that you identified timely topics and good speakers for this series,” said Aaron Ramirez with the Inland Empire Utility Agency in California. “I've already sent the recordings to various people to listen to specific presentations.”
If you were unable to participate in the webinar series, recordings of all six weeks’ presentations are available at the link at right.
“These have been great,” said Candice Rupprecht with the City of Tucson, Ariz. “My coworkers and I have been emailing back and forth throughout about ideas that are new and support we're hearing for ideas that we haven't taken as far as your speakers, yet. Thanks for this event.”
We hope to see you all again in person at next year’s WSI conference and expo, scheduled for Oct. 6-7. For updates and more information, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter. You also can sign up for our e-newsletter at the bottom of this page.
