2017 NGWA Summit

NGWA's preeminent technical conference, the Groundwater Summit, is taking place this year alongside NGWA's leading industry event, Groundwater Week. What does that mean for you?

As a registrant of the Summit, you will not only be able to take advantage of all its "usual" offerings — hearing from distinguished lecturers, attending scores of presentations in sessions covering everything from groundwater monitoring and remediation to sustainability, participating in extended in-depth learning sessions — but you can also attend, at no extra cost, Groundwater Week activities such as the:

  • Attendee Welcome Reception on Tuesday, where you can join with hundreds of fellow groundwater professionals from every sector of the industry for a relaxing early evening get-together
  • NGWA award presentations that honor the best of the best taking place during the keynote session on Wednesday
  • Exhibit hall, which is open for a full 12 hours over the course of Wednesday and Thursday, featuring hundreds of exhibitors displaying the latest in technological advancements, products, and services
  • Hands-on activity areas in the exhibit hall on Wednesday and Thursday, where you can brush up on your current skills and/or learn new ones
  • NGWA Delegates Meeting on Wednesday evening to find out who will be elected to next year's national board of directors.
