ASPE's 2017 Technical Symposium features exciting new professional development options
This year, our Technical Education Program features two new choices for attendees: a full-day Intermediate Plumbing Design Workshop and tours of the Jean R. Marcotte wastewater treatment plant, the largest-capacity wastewater treatment plant in the world. Both options offer the same amount of CEUs for participating as if you had taken technical sessions during the same time. You must pre-register for these events by September 4 and space is limited, so go to 2017tech.aspe.org to register soon.
