Networking at CASA’s Annual Conference
CASA’s Annual Conference is almost here, and we can hardly contain our excitement! CASA staff is looking forward to seeing you again in-person in San Diego August 11-13, as we hear from experts on topics we’re all concerned about, including the impending drought, California’s push for electrification, the changing nature of work, gender diversity and pay equity in the workforce, and much more! The best part? Networking face to face is finally back! Join us for one of many networking opportunities, including the Thursday luncheon, two receptions, and the Women’s Networking Breakfast/Coffee! Reconnect with fellow women of wastewater (WOW) during this informal networking event on day two of CASA’s Annual Conference. Female leaders will be gathering to get to know each other and share ideas and experiences. Join us as we identify ways to lift each other up!

The Women’s Networking Breakfast/Coffee will be held on Thursday, August 12, from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. Bring your colleagues as we build a better future together!

Professional Development ListServ Launches in August
As a part of the broader CASA LEAD (Leadership, Education, Advancement and Development) program, we have developed a specialized LISTSERV to keep members informed of webinars, workshops, trainings, events, and general opportunities for professional development. This LISTSERV will be populated bimonthly starting at the beginning of August with upcoming engagement opportunities in all facets of the clean water industry including biosolids, communications, finance, human resources, regulatory, and more!

Do you know a shining star in your agency that might benefit from continued growth and professional development opportunities? Be sure to share this resource with them! To get signed up for the newest CASA LISTSERV, please email Cheryl MacKelvie with your name, preferred email, and affiliated agency or association.


Calling All Mentors and Mentees!
Ready to take that next step in your wastewater career? Not sure where to start? CASA is here to support you! We are pleased to introduce our latest and greatest member benefit, the CASA Mentoring Program, which is a new offering under our broader CASA LEAD strategic initiative. This 11-month comprehensive program, kicking off in October and concluding in August 2022, serves to connect clean water professionals from across the state of California.

The program is open to both CASA agencies and associates. Be a part of the inaugural class!
