COVID-19 Update(s)

March 18, 2020 -

Dear AWWA NJ Members,

The AWWA NJ Board of Trustees has decided to tentatively reschedule the AWWA NJ Annual Conference for July 7-10, 2020 at the Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa.

We are very cognizant that the situation with the COVID-19 outbreak is continually evolving, and we will continue to monitor and assess the situation regularly in the coming months.  We will continue to follow federal, CDC, and state and local guidelines.  It is our intention to reschedule this conference for July 7 – 10, 2020.  We will continue to monitor the virus situation and remain in contact with The Borgata on a frequent basis throughout the coming weeks and months. We will make a final determination if the conference would need to be cancelled again by the beginning of June. However, our foremost concern is the health and safety of our members, which will be the deciding factor regarding cancellation.

We are also aware that due to limited rescheduling dates available for AWWA Sections with spring conferences, we may be in conflict with neighboring AWWA Sections. We understand that this is not an ideal situation and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our valued members and exhibitors. However, this is the only date available to us from The Borgata.

We anticipate hosting the same conference, just in July. We are working with the conference venue and our other conference affiliates to ensure the process of moving the Annual Conference to July goes as smoothly as possible. More details about these efforts will be related via email and posted on the AWWA NJ website as they become available.

We want to thank all of our exhibitors and registrants for their patience and support as we work to transition the conference and respond to your inquiries.

AWWA NJ’s 2020 conference was on track to be one of our best conferences ever and we will do everything we can to provide the same valuable conference this July. We hope you will still join us!

We will provide more information as it becomes available and will post information on our website at www.njawwa.org.    Answers to some of the questions you may have are listed below:

Attendee Registration:

If you have already registered for the AWWA NJ conference, your registration will be automatically transferred to the new dates – there will be no need to reregister. If you can no longer attend on the new dates, we will provide a full refund of the cost of your registration. If you previously canceled your registration and would like to reinstate it for the new dates, or you need to make changes to your registration level or options, we will be able to process that for you. If you need a refund or change, we will need you to provide it in writing. Please send all requests to registration@njawwa.org.

Exhibitor registrations will be carried over to the new dates. The exhibit hall floorplan will remain the same and you will keep the same booth number(s).

If you will not be able to attend, we will need you to provide it in writing. Please send all requests to registration@njawwa.org.

Hotel Reservations:

Hotel reservations within the AWWA NJ room block at The Borgata were automatically cancelled this past Friday, March 13th.  You will need to rebook your rooms for the rescheduled conference dates.
