We are working very hard to put on our usual All-Day Conference at the Humble Civic Center on August 19th.  Please come out and acquire the hours you need for license renewal.  It is a good chance for you to interact with the vendors that we all use on a regular basis.  Pick their brains about some of their equipment or services that you may be using.  Or find out about what new technologies are available.  Please be sure to thank our vendors for supporting SHWUA and the All-Day, we couldn’t do this without them. 

Lunch  is sponsored by Accurate Meter & Supply

Issues have come up in the past with meeting discipline.  In other words, not treating these meetings the same as you would an in person class.  So sit down.  Don’t be wandering around talking to your friends, playing on your phone, smoking outside or dumping your dinner trash.  Give the instructor your courteous attention.  They have put forth the effort to put a presentation together for your benefit.  We are charged by TCEQ via TWUA to follow the rules.  There was an occurrence at the last All Day and again last month with folks attempting to get credit for attending the meeting without being there for the full hours claimed.  THIS CANNOT HAPPEN.  It endangers our charter and our very existence.  Please do not put your membership in jeopardy or run the chance of ruining it for our 300 or so loyal members.
