No Rest for the Water Sector

We’re coming off a week that included the Water Leaders Summit, our biggest event of the year, along with a meeting of Great Lakes WISE and the Asian Development Bank Roadshow. But there’s little rest for our team, as WEFTEC is less than two weeks away. That’s followed by our international business development event in Milwaukee, when we will host more than 40 guests from Europe plus companies from Brazil and Canada.

Building Water Resiliency

Resiliency – defined as the capacity to withstand or to recover quickly from difficulties – is important to many of our members working in water technology, water and wastewater utilities, and water stewardship. So it made sense for resiliency to be the theme of our 2023 Water Leaders Summit, held Sept. 13 and 14 in our hometown of Milwaukee, Wis. Each year, the summit draws water and sustainability professionals from across the country to discuss pressing water issues and network with fellow leaders in the water sector.

Businesses Becoming Great Lakes WISE

Businesses in the Great Lakes region have not had a forum of their own to discuss water issues, encourage water stewardship and promote this valuable resource in our collective backyard – until now. That’s what we are creating, in collaboration with the Council of the Great Lakes Region, in Great Lakes WISE (Water Innovation & Stewardship Exchange), which held its first roundtable last week in Chicago.

Collaboration is Key at WEFTEC 2021

WEFTEC is a highlight of The Water Council’s year, and though the event looked different in 2021, that fact didn’t change. The Water Council has a strong presence at this year’s event in Chicago, co-sponsoring the Global Center with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation on behalf of the state of Wisconsin.
