Lunch & Learn!

GMWEA is pleased to announce the launch of a new continuing education initiative that’s geared to people on the job. We call it Lunch and Learn because the sessions start at 12 noon and end within the hour.  They’re presented online, so you can attend from anywhere, and they’re affordable – only $15 for GMWEA members!

Please join us on Tuesday, April 13, for Laboratory Procedures, by Eileen Toomey and Rod Lamothe of Endyne Labs (right). The virtual training will feature hands-on demonstrations of lab procedures as well as lecture, slides, and Q&A.

Credits: 1 Water TCH, 1 Wastewater TCH

Content: This session will cover some of the basic techniques used in the analytical laboratory, including procedures for using common lab tools such as balances, glassware, reagents, and essential instrumentation. We will review various analytical methods that relate to the typical water or wastewater laboratory such as BOD, TSS, turbidity, and others; finally, we will review the quality control requirements and personal protection in the laboratory. There will be a brief Q & A at the end of the presentation. 

Cost: $15 for GMWEA members, $60 for nonmembers.  (If you haven’t renewed or signed up yet, your registration fee will include 2021 membership dues!)

To register: For online registration and credit card payment, CLICK HERE. Or, contact Daniel Hecht at dan.hecht@gmwea.org for registration materials.

Lunch and Learn will be presented every second Tuesday of the month except May, when we’ll present our annual Spring Conference, and October, when we’ll hold the Fall Tradeshow.  Visit www.gmwea.org for updates on future Lunch and Learn session topics!

PS: Speaking of Spring Conference: It’s on! Mark your calendar and please plan to attend this virtual event on May 20 and 21, for five hours of trainings, our annual Service Excellence Awards presentations, a keynote speech by Jeff Wennberg, and, tentatively, a special address by Sen. Bernie Sanders! Check www.gmwea.org for more information.
