AC20

CWEA hosts an industry-leading annual conference each year to help make the California water sector a better place.

New, this year CWEA is jointly hosting Annual Conference with our friends from the Nevada Water Environment Association at the Reno Convention Center and Atlantis Casino Spa Resort in Reno Nevada. The Sacramento Convention Center is closed for remodeling in 2020. Reno is easy to get to, affordable and fun.

CWEA's Annual Conference empowers attendees to:

  1. Create the utility of the future
  2. Help you grow your leadership, technical skills and capacity
  3. Network with fellow water professionals (from California and Nevada!) and share lessons learned
  4. The Program Team wants you to have fun!
