The National Rural Water Association partnered with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers October 4-6 in Louisville, KY for the National Conference of the two groups. The event offered over 80 educational sessions, 1,000 exhibits and equipment displayed over 30 acres for the thousands of attendees. The partnership is designed to bring together water and wastewater utility systems, big and small, municipal and rural, operations, management and governance to create the only event of its kind. H2O-XPO is designed to meet the increasing needs of water, wastewater and municipal operations in products, services, equipment and education.

During the opening Reception and Awards Ceremony on October 4th, around 2,000 water professionals from across the nation gathered to enjoy an evening of networking, entertainment, good food and Awards Excellence Recognition. As the Awards Ceremony got underway it was announced that the National Rural Water Association Awards Committee Members would recognize six State Rural Water Associations from the 45 Associations nationwide in the categories of:
