During this global pandemic, Florida Rural Water Association (FRWA) and Alabama Rural Water Association (ARWA) are finding new ways to address the health and safety of our members, Florida’s and Alabama’s operators, and the customers, friends, and neighbors who trust our industry to provide safe clean drinking water. FRWA and ARWA have arrived at the decision to postpone the Florida-Alabama Joint Technical Training Conference, originally scheduled for May 20-21, 2020. The new dates of the conference will be September 21-23, 2020.

The conference will still be held at the Edgewater Beach Resort in Panama City Beach, Florida. We are working with the resort to ensure that any precautions for large gatherings are in place for everyone’s health and safety. Due to the change in dates, the room rates will now start at $104 per night; you will want to make your reservations early. Those staying at the resort will be charged a one-time $10 parking fee for the duration of your stay. To get more information on room rates or to make new reservations, please contact the resort directly by calling 800-331-6338 and mentioning the Conference or the booking code #11502D, or by visiting their website https://www.resortcollection.com/edgewater-beach-resort. In the next few weeks, Edgewater may reach out to you about rescheduling your room reservation if you have already made one.

At this time, FRWA has closed registration for the conference through the website. As September nears, registration will reopen on FRWA’s website and the latest information can be found here.  Registration fees will remain the same. Anyone who has previously registered for the conference will be refunded. FRWA and ARWA members will receive notification through the usual channels when registration for attendees is open. For exhibitors who reserved a booth your registration will also be refunded and updated information will be sent to you in late June to register for the conference once again.

We will continue to monitor the situation and keep an eye on the changing landscape for large events to ensure that public health is preserved. We look forward to enjoying our time on the beach with you in September when things are better. Until then, follow the established public health guidelines and keep doing an amazing job at providing Florida and Alabama with safe clean drinking water.
