[03/29/18]   WWEMA has announced a new session at the 45th Washington Forum: The Impact of the President’s Trade Agenda on Our Industry, with speaker David Spooner, Partner at Barnes & Thornburg LLP in Washington, DC.

In the past month, the White House has announced a bevy of new import taxes – from tariffs on global imports of steel and aluminum in the name of national security to tariffs on $50 to $60 billion worth of imports from China in retaliation for China’s intellectual property policies. These tariffs have come against a backdrop of an Administration push to conclude a renegotiation of the NAFTA and of the Korea free trade agreement. David Spooner, the Co-Chair of Barnes & Thornburg’s International Trade Practice (and a former Asst. Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration and former trade negotiator), will provide an update on the Administration’s trade initiatives and will try to predict the road ahead.

Advancing Technologies in the Water Sector – What You Need to Know to Effectively Communicate with Your Utility Customers.

George Hawkins is nationally-known for his enthusiastic embrace of new technologies and his willingness to think outside the box in achieving public health and environmental protection. As the past general manager of DC Water, George gained significant experience in working with technology developers and manufacturers. He is using that knowledge now to help technology manufacturers better communicate with their utility customers in defining and better meeting their technology needs. George will share some of those insights during his presentation.

Tariff Proclamations Already Negatively Impacting Costs and Projects - WWEMA Sends Letter to President Trump and Secretary Ross

WWEMA sent a letter to President Trump and Secretary Ross on Friday, March 16, 2018 outlining our concerns with the unintended consequences of the President's March 15, 2018 tariff proclamations on steel and aluminum. President Trump has imposed a 10 percent tariff on aluminum and a 25 percent tariff on steel coming into the country from all countries except Canada and Mexico.

The impacts are already being felt by many of our members including significant price increases, the inability to obtain price quotes from suppliers beyond a few hours or days, the need to renegotiate already bid projects due to significant cost escalations, and potential work slowdowns or stoppage due to an inability to manage pricing risks moving forward. This tariff decision has the potential to cause significant interruption in supply chain, bidding, and contract negotiations going forward and impact current and future infrastructure projects.

WWEMA 45th Washington Forum

WWEMA has announced additional sessions and speakers for the 45th Washington Forum, held April 17 – 19, 2018, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center at National Harbor, MD.

- The Potential Role for P3s in Water Infrastructure Investment with speaker Stephen J. Auton-Smith, Managing Director, Infrastructure Advisory, Ernst & Young Infrastructure Advisors LLC

The Administration’s Infrastructure Plan calls for up to 80 percent of the funding to come from private equity, state, and local investment. One option for leveraging private funding is the creation of public private partnerships (P3s). While more common outside of the U.S., there are growing examples of where such partnerships in the U.S. have resulted in successful project funding and implementation with project risks being borne by the appropriate party throughout the process. Mr. Auton-Smith will provide an overview of P3s in the U.S. water infrastructure sector along with a number of case studies and lessons learned. He will also address what governors’ offices can do to help promote the use of this type of partnership.

- Utility Assistance Partnerships – the Wave of the Future? with speaker Eric Emmerich, Business Development Coordinator, EJ Water Cooperative, Inc.

Encouraging partnerships and removing investment barriers has been a point of significant discussion with regard to infrastructure legislation with particular emphasis on increasing financial resources and operational expertise available to small and mid-size systems by offering more financial incentives, providing a regulatory safe harbor, and improving compliance and operational scale. Located in Dieterich, Illinois, EJ Water Cooperative, Inc. has developed into a multi-county regional water system since being incorporated in 1989. It is one of the fastest growing water systems in the state reaching out to unserved surrounding areas. Eric will discuss the types of partnerships and assistance EJ Water is providing and present this model for how other water systems can support surrounding systems that lack capacity or financial capability.

Rob Renner and Melissa Meeker, Co-Chief Executive Officers, to speak at the 45th WWEMA Washington Forum.

The Boards of the Water Environment & Reuse Foundation (WE&RF) and the Water Research Foundation (WRF) unanimously agreed to integrate the two organizations beginning January 1, 2018 thus creating one research organization for the water sector. The new organization now known as “The Water Research Foundation” has approximately 1,200 subscribers, 2,300 research studies, and a $700 million portfolio. Where once there were three separate research organizations, there is now one. The benefits include leveraging funding more successfully, sharing a greater knowledge base, and more efficiently communicating new results and research needs with Federal and state regulators. This consolidation provides a better opportunity for technology providers who operate across all segments of the water sector to participate in a consolidated and prioritized research agenda. Rob and Melissa will be discussing the status of the merger and how technology providers can play a larger role in research going forward.

Rob and Melissa will speak at the Washington Forum on Thursday, April 19th, at the Gaylord National Resort, National Harbor, MD.

- The State of the First Amendment - Is the Role of the Press in Effectively Communicating News Being Eroded? Speaker: Gene Policinski, President & Chief Operating Officer, Newseum Institute

What is the role of the press and media in reporting on events and news, and is the First Amendment, which guarantees freedom of speech and the press, under attack? This engaging and provocative presentation by Gene Policinski of the Newseum, which is dedicated to ensuring that the five freedoms of the First Amendment remain strong and protected both for today and for future generations, will offer insights on the role of media and how it can and should effectively communicate and educate us about the stories and events of the day.

The theme for this year's meeting is Effectively Communicating Change at the National, State and Local Level. More sessions and speakers for the WWEMA Washington Forum will be announced shortly.
