Event description

Description

Every day the water sector delivers critical services that protect public health and support the vitality of our communities, natural environment, and economy. Water utilities are truly anchor institutions in our communities. As you know, today’s water sector also faces a significant challenge: recruiting, retaining, and developing a strong and adequate workforce. While utilities are at the leading edge, many other partners, including training and educational organizations, professional associations, community organizations, government agencies, and others need to work together to ensure the water workforce can address current and expected challenges and ensure clean and safe water into the future.

A coalition consisting of the organizations identified below will host a National Water Workforce Convening to be held on November 14-15, 2018 at Alexandria Renew Enterprises in Alexandria, Virginia. This convening will bring together a diverse group of individuals with a common interest in ensuring a sustainable water workforce.

Based on your considerable background and expertise, we would like to invite you to participate in this event and lend your insights built around the following objectives:

  • Identify actions for sector partners to take in response to the gaps and opportunities identified during convening discussions – develop an action agenda for water sector partners;
  • Deepen our collective understanding of current workforce initiatives and the opportunities they present for leveraging and scaling efforts in the water sector; and
  • Establish a framework for organizing workforce efforts to improve communication and collaboration among water sector partners.

As you can see from the draft agenda, our goal is to conduct an interactive, action- oriented discussion that will both support our objectives and provide value to the participants. We very much hope you will accept this invitation to attend.
