Session Preview


Engaging your residents

We’re keen to present a new style of session Thursday morning talking about relationship building and communicating with your customers. Learn from experienced utility leaders about how they engage, listen, and get buy-in from their residents. 

AGM and Election

Our AGM will take place October 26th in the afternoon. Election of Directors is held at the AGM.

Of the 11 Directors positions, there are three positions up for renewal for a 3-year term.

WSABC Directors represent the greater interests of the water supply industry in the BC Southern Interior. Meetings are bi-monthly and the Directors must be a representative from a Utility Member of the WSABC. Directors meet via teleconference or live bi-monthly so the time commitment is manageable. We encourage all utilities to consider having a staff run for a Director position.

Trade Show and Banquet

We’re happy to be holding a Trade Show again this year. If you’re a small community that doesn’t see suppliers coming through too often, then check out this gathering of leading water suppliers. They will bring insight and demos. Plus there are appies!

A banquet will follow the trade show on the evening of October 26. The WSABC may recognize some outstanding members and/or utilities of our association with an award.
