Seminars and Institutes

Refer to our online calendar for the most current list of scheduled Seminars & Institutes.

 

What Are Seminars and Institutes?

Seminars are topics chosen by our local Committees and are open to anyone wishing to attend. Institutes include topics chosen by the utility hosting the event. While the majority of attendees at an Institute will be employees of the host utility, there will always be seats reserved for non-host utility employees. The registration and attendance process for non-host employees is the same as our traditional seminar registration and attendance process.What’s the Difference? Institutes are hosted by utility companies and seminars are sponsored by NC AWWA-WEA committees. BOTH are open to anyone wishing to attend!

 

How Do Institutes Work?

  1.  A utility contacts NC AWWA-WEA with potential dates, a location,and a list of preferred training topics.
  2. NC AWWA-WEA work with the utility to negotiate a mutually beneficial date, location, agenda, and price.
  3. NC AWWA-WEA committees prepare presentations on the agreed upon agenda topics and gain the appropriate CEU continuing education approvals.
  4. The utility registers their employees to attend the Institute session.
  5. After the event, all attendees who meet the requirements will receive a certificate of attendance and, when applicable,continuing education credit.

 

Who Can Attend Institutes?

EVERYONE! While the majority of attendees at an Institute will be employees of the host utility, there will always be seats reserved for non-host utility employees. The registration and attendance process for non-host employees is the same as our traditional seminar registration and attendance process.
