Now in its seventh year, the 2012 WWAC symposium is experiencing a new-found growth in popularity thanks to newly-formed alliances with the Water Environment Federation (WEF), the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association (FSAWWA), and the National Rural Water Association (NRWA). By forming strong partnerships with other associations, the symposium has been able to reach out to automation, instrumentation and SCADA professionals across the industry. For members of these associations, the symposium represents targeted professional development and training opportunities that they could not find elsewhere.
As of July 1st and five weeks in advance of the symposium, over 100 automation professionals have already preregistered for the symposium. Also the symposium’s optional full-day short-course on cybersecurity now boasts over 20 preregistered participants.
