2017 Pacific Water Conference Contributions

The Hawai‘i Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA-HI) and the Hawai‘i Water Environment Association (HWEA) are proud to announce the fourth annual joint conference now known as the Pacific Water Conference at the Hawai‘i Convention Center from February 15 – 16, 2017. This year’s theme is “E mālama I ke kumu wai ola a kākou, Preserving our living water resources.”


Each year the success of the conference depends on the generous donations of individuals, firms, and companies. Donation levels ranging from Iron ($300) to Platinum ($2000) are available. You may also purchase advertisement space in the conference booklet or support our annual community service event directly. Any donation amount would be appreciated. In addition, we are always on the lookout for great door prizes, gifts, giveaways and other items to give out to attendees, speakers and/or volunteers throughout the conference. Please contact the Contributions committee if there is interest, as slots for certain types of donations may be limited.

Please see the linked Conference Donations Flyer. Contact Contributions committee, Jay Stone (808-521-5361) or Keith Faufata (808-628‐1534), at for more information.
