McGill’s Vice President Gives Presentation at NCWOA Seminar
THE IMPORTANCE OF PARTICIPATING IN SEMINARS
Last month, McGill Vice President Keith Webb gave a training presentation at the virtual North Carolina Waterworks Operators Association (NCWOA) seminar. NCWOA has been the premier trainer of waterworks professionals in North Carolina since 1939, and as an industry leader in water and wastewater engineering, McGill uses opportunities such as this, to not only educate but inform, inspire, and motivate both external and internal audiences.
“McGill has a responsibility to the industry — which supports and provides us with the opportunity to work on exciting projects that benefit society, and protect the health and safety of America,” Keith explained. “Presentations like this one show that McGill is committed to helping our clients and their utility systems meet the needs and demands of customers.”
THE VIRTUAL NCWOA SEMINAR WAS A SUCCESS
The meeting was held on the Zoom platform and Keith said, “The presentation went very well, I had 35–40 people attend, and most of those attending were water or wastewater plant operators in need of professional development hours for continued certification.”
TOPICS COVERED IN PRESENTATION: ASSET MANAGEMENT
“My presentation focused on the need for asset management so that systems know what facilities they have, updating maps, information on equipment, age of facilities, service life, and the need for a capital improvements plan to secure funding,” said Keith.
NCWOA SEMINAR TAKEAWAYS
The NCWOA seminar projected a positive image on the importance of safe drinking water and provided the occasion for skills training, increasing knowledge on an ever-changing industry, and the development of working relationships with fellow water professionals.
