The Water Quality Assn. (WQA) announced that David LaFrance, the Chief Executive Officer of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) will be a featured speaker at the Opening General Session of the 2018 WQA Convention & Exposition in Denver, Colo., on March 27, 2018.

“I look forward to addressing attendees at the WQA Convention,” LaFrance said. “While we may be focused on different aspects of water treatment, we share a common bond and purpose in providing quality water for everyone.”

The WQA Convention takes place over four days, March 26 to 29, 2018 at the Colorado Convention Center. The Opening General Session also features keynote speaker Ross Shafer, six-time Emmy-winning comedian and best-selling author of “Nobody Moved Your Cheese.”

Education tracks include Business Operations with topics such as recruitment and retention, empowering employees for greater engagement and managing online reviews. A full day Business Operations Boot Camp takes place March 25, the day before the Convention opens. A separate registration is required to attend the Boot Camp.

Other sessions include commercial applications designed to help attendees understand the sub-sectors of the commercial water treatment market, residential applications, water treatment technologies and regulatory changes affecting the industry.
