IRWA Fall Conferences 2020

 

 

 

Recently, we discovered that the City of Dubuque and thus the Grand River Center issued a Mask Mandate in their community.  In an effort to continue with an In-Person Fall Conference and to keep our attendees comfortable, in addition to safe, we have decided to switch conference venues from the Grand River Center in Dubuque, Iowa to the Peosta Community Centre in Peosta, Iowa.  We apologize for the inconvenience but feel this is the best option for all our attendees.

Your current conference registration stands as it is.  You do not need to do anything further with registration besides show up at Peosta for the conferences.  Due to the venue change we do need to adjust the schedule times, so each day sessions will start at 8:30 AM.

If you made hotel reservations at Grand Harbor, they are NOT going to retain your hotel reservations. They have all been canceled and you will need to make alternate arrangements. We have a new room block at the American Inn in Peosta, Iowa.   The room block is at the Peosta American Inn which is closer to the Community Centre for your convenience.
American Inn Peosta | 100 Peosta Street | Peosta, IA | (563) 557-8878 | Rate: $60.00/night
Mention you are with Iowa Rural Water Association for the discounted room rate.

COVID-19 has had a major impact on our ability to provide training and hold conferences.  Many factors, including the Governor Proclamations, federal and state agencies guidance, facility requirements, etc. affect how we plan, develop and hold training events.  Our planning for the 2020 Fall Conference is based on the information, restrictions and projections that were in place as of August 2020.  All of these factors are subject to change.  We will continue to monitor all of the factors and make adjustments as necessary.  We will hold two separate conferences for Water and Wastewater at each location with attendance being limited to the first 200 registrants for each conference.  Onsite registration will NOT be an option for any of the Fall Conferences.
