IBWA General Session and Annual Business Meeting
Monday, November 8     2:30 pm – 3:45 pm

The work of the Association doesn’t stop because of COVID-19. In fact, in many ways IBWA is busier than ever—helping the bottled water community navigate through these precarious times and also continuing our work on other important industry issues like recycling content mandates, bottled water sales bans, microplastics, PFAS, recycling, sustainability, tariffs, and more—the bottled water industry has tackled a lot of issues in 2021, but industry professionals know that it is all worth it to continue bringing healthy hydration to our customers.

Attend IBWA’s General Session to hear IBWA President and CEO Joe Doss present his state of the association speech, which will update members on the many successes the Association has earned this year—and review challenges on the horizon.

Members will also vote on the slate of nominees for IBWA’s Board of Directors, and IBWA Chairman CR Hall (Hall’s Culligan) will discuss what he envisions for the upcoming year.


DWRF Fundraiser Night 2021- a Super Time!
Tuesday, November 9 7:00 pm-8:30 pm

The Drinking Water Research Foundation Board of Trustees invites you to join us for the Superhero Academy Training on Zoom on Tuesday, November 9, from 7:00 pm-8:30 pm Eastern Time, for an evening of friendly competition.

Will you be a superhero or a supervillain? There’s only one way to find out!

This competitive training will consist of being broken into teams to solve diabolical puzzles, answering trivia questions, and completing challenges. Each team will have to combine each person’s strengths to overcome the supervillains during the Final Battle of the Wits. The winning team gets extra raffle tickets — and of course bragging rights for an indeterminate amount of time. Tickets are $120 per person, with $80 tax deductible. If you think you have what it takes to complete the Superhero Academy Training and save the world, please register by October 29, 2021.

Your participation in DWRF’s Annual Fundraiser helps fund the vital research that impacts the bottled water industry now and in the future. Sponsorship opportunities are also available—please Linda Amar, Program Coordinator (lamar@bottledwater.org) for more information.
