Open Call (Americas Region) – Statement of Interest to Host the 9th IWA International Young Water Professionals Conference

IWA is inviting Governing members, Young Water Professional Chapters, Corporate members and partners to submit your Statement of Interest to Host the IWA International Young Water Professional Conference in 2019. Read the Guidelines for venue proposal and your statement of interest in the attached document.

Please note that the deadline for receiving Statements of Intent is 15 February 2017.

IWA International Young Water Professionals Conference (IYWPC) provides a unique combination of programmatic content that will appeal to young academics, early career and mid-career professionals from all disciplines and types of organisations. Through the offering of technical paper sessions, poster exhibition, topical and soft skill development workshops, trainings, solutions work, networking opportunities, and a career fair, it is the “Must attend” event for career development in the water sector.

The International Water Association has held seven successful International Young Water Professional Conferences, with the next event scheduled in Cape Town South Africa (10-13 December 2017). Previous IYWPC’s have been held in the UK (2002), Netherlands (2004), Singapore (2006), USA (2008), Australia (2010), Hungary (2012), Taiwan (2014).

The 9th edition (to be held in 2019) of this affordable event, designed specifically for young water professional learning, will continue this legacy by building on voluntary contributions of young water professionals in organisation and programme committees, supported by advisory committees.

If your organisation is interested in hosting this conference, please read the guidelines for venue proposal and send your statement of interest, an email stating your intention to submit a proposal, to Keith Robertson (keith.robertson@iwahq.org)
