2021 Groundwater Week Call for Workshop Submissions

December 14-16, 2021

Music City Center – Nashville, Tennessee

The National Ground Water Association is soliciting workshop submissions for the 2021 Groundwater Week—the best of theory turned into practical application. Survey results from the 2020 Groundwater Week overwhelmingly indicated attendees preferred fewer and extremely high-quality offerings, and NGWA will accommodate. All submissions should reflect new and improved technologies, current industry application, and influences with ramifications to the groundwater industry and those who work in it.

Three concurrent workshop sessions will be offered at various times on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Each workshop will be allocated 60 minutes and each actual presentation should be at least 52 minutes in length or it will be ineligible for state-recognized continuing education credit. NGWA may adjust event formats and scheduling as circumstances necessitate.

Submissions will be capture through the electronic submission system until May 1 at 11:59 p.m. PT when it will close.

We are seeking submissions on the following topic areas:

Submissions should address one of these major topic areas:

  • Business Management and Diversification
  • Drilling Operations and Well Construction
  • Geothermal Operations
  • Groundwater Monitoring
  • Safe Practice
  • Water Quality
  • Water Systems Installation and Operation
  • Well Maintenance and Rehabilitation
  • Well Owner Outreach and Education

All submissions must be written in sentence form without bullet points. Prompts during the submission process will alert submitters to word limits for titles and descriptions.

Individuals and companies are limited to a maximum of four workshop submissions without guarantee any submission will be accepted.

A bio sketch need only be three sentences capturing your current affiliation and the groundwater-related activities you perform or oversee.

Each accepted workshop presenter is expected to:

  • Register for the event by the stated speaker deadline

  • Commit to conducting the workshop in person on the scheduled date and time and that presentation time will be at least 52 minutes.
