NC AWWA-WEA 97th Annual Conference November 13, 2017
M. B. Kahn recently exhibited at the 97th Annual North Carolina American Waterworks Association-Water Environment Association (NC AWWA-WEA) Conference which was held at the Raleigh Convention Center November 12th – 15th, 2017. More than 1,000 water professionals and 150+ vendors took part in the trade show, continuing education sessions, forums, meetings, and competitions at this year’s conference.
Highfill Infrastructure Engineers’ Vice President, Ray Cox, was elected the Chair for the 2017-2018 NC AWWA-WEA Board of Trustees! We are proud to have worked with Highfill and Ray on several Pump Station Expansions/Upgrades for Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA) over the years. Our staff enjoyed seeing many of our North Carolina clients, engineers, suppliers and other industry colleagues. We sat in on several unique training sessions, including an alternative delivery forum, a collaborative Design-Build approach seminar and others.
Our exhibit booth matched the Conference’s baseball theme – ‘Hit it Out of The Park.’ We featured a map of NC, where attendees marked their favorite NC Minor League Baseball Team, and the Exhibits Committee raffled our ‘Made in NC’ baseball gift basket, which included cases of Pepsi and Cheerwine, Lance Crackers, Shallowford Farms Popcorn, Bertie County Peanuts, NC Craft Beers, Texas Pete Hot Sauces, Scott’s BBQ Sauce, a $25 Krispy Kreme gift card, a Durham Bulls baseball hat, a M. B. Kahn baseball hat, Bull Durham on DVD and a book titled ‘Baseball in the Piedmont.’ Congratulations to Ms. Charley Lovelace, Assistant Superintendent from the CIty of Raleigh’s Water Distribution Division, on winning our gift basket valued at $200!
Our NC basket included the corresponding water footprint of each North Carolina product. Water is the world’s most important resource and an essential ingredient in growing the NC economy as well. M. B. Kahn is here to support and strengthen our clients and communities through clean water. We a proud supporters of the NC AWWA-WEA and look forward to the 2018 Annual Conference!
