Networking Opportunities

We want you to share your insights, knowledge, questions, and creativity with us and with each other. Take advantage of these networking opportunities:


Informal Networking Opportunities

The NWQMC recognizes it can be challenging to meet others at a large conference, grow your peer network and have time for quality discussions. We created two informal networking opportunities to help you meet others and share with others in a meaningful context.


Young or New Water Quality Professionals

If you have been in your career for ten years or less, you are building your peer network. Join others and compare career tracks, discuss professional or water quality ideas, issues or challenges that dominate your life. There is a networking lunch for New Water Quality Professionals scheduled for Tuesday’s lunch. Grab your boxed lunch and head to Tower C for a fantastic networking opportunity.


360 Inquiry Mentoring

We spend all day learning technical aspects of our work. This is a chance to share what makes our careers memorable, fun or successful? We are all teachers and students. We all have some advice we were given, a lesson we learned or a question we may have. This is a chance to find someone perhaps in your same sector (agency, educator, consultant, service provider, etc.) and mentor each other. Or perhaps you can find someone of the same gender, geographic region or another interest as common ground. Perhaps you have a vision of the difference you want to make in your career, and you can exchange where you both are on that path.

There will be a Mentoring Network opportunity Wednesday evening. Folks will be meeting at 5:30 in the lobby of the Sheraton Hotel. This is an opportunity for students and early career professionals to meet up with experienced professionals to ask questions, exchange ideas and make career connections.
