Now Open – Call for Presentations for 2019 Annual Conference


PWABC is now accepting submissions for presentations at our 2019 Annual Conference.

Our goal is to provide delegates a diverse range of topics to optimize their learning
experience and with your help we can ensure delegates have the best conference experience.
We strongly believe both associations can achieve this by providing delegates with information
on the latest ideas, best practices, innovation, and inspirational presentations.

We invite presentations from municipal leaders, consultants and service providers to share their expertise and experience.
