 Some exciting things are happening this year. DPOR held several workshops across the state to help those in need of licensure. Their purpose was to help with the application process and also to answer any questions you may have concerning licensing. VOWRA took this opportunity to provide low cost Wastewater Math Courses after most of the DPOR workshops to further help individuals prepare to take their licensure exam. We were very pleased at the turnout. Not only did we help industry professionals further prepare for their exam, we had members of the design community take part as well. We also teamed up with Loudoun County in sponsoring lunch for their nitrogen workshop. We are in the process of planning a June 5th event with Winchester Building Supply (WBS) to be held at WBS.  In conjunction with WBS, we’re hoping to bring a full day of education and fun for everyone. This is the 1st of what I hope to be many with WBS.
