Join us for Global Connections Day — Water: Safety, Efficiency, and Conservation as experts from around the world convene for an interactive day dedicated to our most precious natural resource. Learn about novel approaches and new technologies that are being employed in the U.S. and internationally to address the water challenges of the global community. Participants will receive CEUs for this Session.

There will be a fee of $25 for lunch.

The Code Council is committed to protecting and ensuring the safety of water supplies and sources throughout the United States and the world.
