In March 2020, the ISA held it annual Spring Leaders Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, USA. Along with some one hundred leaders from around the world, our very own Don Dickinson, 2020-2021 WWID Division Director, was in attendance to ensure our voice was heard as part of the ISA’s strategic planning activities. The weekend meeting, from Fri March 6 to Sunday March 8, 2020 welcomed volunteers and professional staff from the ISA’s many operating areas. Included were representatives fro Sections, Divisions, Districts, Standards, Conferences, and other technical committees. It was also a chance for the ISA’s executive board to hold a face-to-face meeting.
At the event, attendees were treated to a keynote address by Maggie Walker, and a series of workshops where the next steps for ISA’s multi-year strategic plan were further developed. It was also a chance to discuss the various challenges and opportunities that come with operating a non-profit technical association in the 2020’s. Attendees were also treated to social activities in the evenings where everyone got a chance to reconnect with old friends and meet the ISA’s new and upcoming leaders. A big thank you to Don Dickinson for attending to ensure that the needs of the Municipal Water/Wastewater sector continue to be known and to help the ISA continue to shape its strategic path forward.
