WERS Update: Around the Nation

Check out events and training in a city near you.

Mark your calendar for The Next Generation Water Summit, which will take place June 4-6, 2017 at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center in Santa Fe, N.M. The overarching theme of the event will be how to sustain the building/development industry in western states with declining water resources, even as the next decade experiences surging growth from retiring Baby Boomers.

The first day (Sunday) will have a Green Expo at the Convention Center, with local experts doing seminars in the break-out rooms. Three educational tracks, targeting Builders/Developers/Architects, Policymakers, and Water Conservation Experts, will span three days. There will be three sessions in each track on Sunday afternoon, followed by a full slate on Monday and Tuesday. Keynote speakers will open Monday and Tuesday’s proceedings. Pre-conference courses, including QWEL training, ARCSA AP training and WERS Verifier training, are scheduled.

Hosts of the event will be the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce (SFCC) (lead host), Green Builder Coalition, City of Santa Fe, and the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association. Santa Fe Community College is the official education sponsor, and Green Builder Media is the national media sponsor.
