Welcome to the KsAWWA website! As the new chair for 2019, I am proud to be serving the Kansas Section. I have been a member of the American Water Works Association for twenty years. It has been a great networking resource, and there are a lot of great water professionals working in Kansas to ensure our customers and communities have safe, clean water every day.

I invite everyone to get more involved in the AWWA organization. The 11th Annual KWEA/KsAWWA Joint Conference planning is underway and will be held August 27-29, 2019 at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Topeka. The keynote speaker this year will be Tim Grunhard.

I am looking forward to this year’s annual joint conference and know that they are planning another great conference for all the attendees to learn and enjoy. Thank you for all the work you do for your water systems.
