May 15 through May 16, 2018, the Alabama Rural Water Association (ARWA) and the Florida Rural Water Association (FRWA) hosted another very successful Joint Technical Training Conference in Panama City, Florida. This Conference began years ago with each State Association hosting it every other year in their respective State. The 2019 AL/FL Joint Technical Conference will take place in Alabama.
This Training Conference is unique because it offers utilities from both Alabama and Florida the opportunity to network and discuss how new and existing regulations affect their respective utilities and how each utility complies with those regulations.
The AL/FL Joint Technical Conference would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. We would like to thank all the sponsors that made the conference possible.

The Conference began bright and early at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 15th, 2018 with the registration desk open for business. In addition, the Exhibit Hall offered a continental breakfast to the attendees.

The Conference opened in earnest at 9:00 a.m. with Gary Williams, Executive Director of the FRWA welcoming the crowd.

Afterwards, Kathy Horne, Executive Director of the ARWA participated in the opening welcoming remarks as well.

During the opening session, Kathy Horne and Gary Williams gave a special recognition to two of the Conference Sponsors. Larry Ruffin with L. J. Ruffin & Associates and Randy Bush with Thornton, Musso & Bellemin, Inc. were recognized for their generous sponsorships that made the AL/FL Conference possible.

Next on the agenda was the Florida and Alabama Primacy Agency updates followed by a day full of technical training sessions.

After a long day of training it was time to relax. There is nothing more relaxing than listening to some good music and chowing down on some boiled shrimp and all the fixings!

The AL/FL Joint Technical Training Conference was a great success and we would like to thank all the sponsors and the attendees for all of their support.
