From The Field: 2022 WASDA Fall Conference Recap

WASDA 2022_1The Safe-T-Cover team recently attended the 2022 WASDA Fall Conference, held at the JW Marriott in beautiful downtown Indianapolis. Although it was unseasonably cold and we did get a bit of snow on the last day, the weather was nice enough to allow us to venture into the city when meetings were not in session.

WASDA, the Water and Sewer Distributors of America, represents national and regional waterworks distributors throughout the country. The fall conference is an organizational favorite, as distributors and manufacturers have 15 minute ‘speed dating’ meetings stacked together for a frenetic few days of communication, collaboration and most of all, fellowship. I personally had 22 meetings during the conference, so as the VP of Sales and Marketing, I made 22 quality sales calls to customers from all parts of the country, and only had to travel to one place! The efficiency and efficacy is unparalleled. As a 20-year industry veteran, I cherish WASDA as one of the most vital trade organizations in the industry, and the relationships built over those years will last a lifetime.

WASDA 2022_2The mission of WASDA is to strengthen and promote the distribution of water and wastewater products and services. WASDA accomplishes its mission by offering members a variety of programs and services that benefit their company and employees.

The main goals of WASDA are to:

  • Educate and inform about waterworks
  • Provide resources for industry communications and dialogue
  • Be the voice of the water and wastewater industry in regards to legislative and industry issues
  • Provide programs and services to recruit and retain industry members
  • Maintain a highly effective association for the industry

If you are a regional or national waterworks distributor and have never been a part of WASDA, I highly recommend you join the team and reap the benefits:

WASDA makes sure municipalities and distributors are able to network and connect for supplies and services. You’re sure to find a WASDA member in a district near you. For the networking and resources, the industry recognition and opportunities for added brand visibility and potential sales growth, becoming a WASDA member is one of the easiest decisions you can make for 2023 and beyond.
