The California-Nevada Section of the American Water Works Association will host a fall conference on Oct. 26-29, at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas. The Exhibit Hall will open on Tuesday and Wednesday with technical sessions on Tuesday and Thursday. 

This year, the conference theme is "Solutions for a Changing World," and the technical program will revolve around changing water needs in the western United States. The conference will include about 150 sessions from top experts speaking on relevant projects or topics. 

Chad Pregracke, founder of Living Lands & Water, will speak during the Opening Session. Pregracke and the Living Lands & Water crew have led 8,000 cleanups on 23 rivers in 20 states and removed about 8 million pounds of garbage. Maureen Stapleton, general manager of the San Diego County Water Authority, is the conference keynote speaker. Stapleton oversees a dynamic agency that is aggressively pursuing a comprehensive array of water supply and infrastructure programs designed to diversify and improve the reliability of San Diego County's water supply. 

New events this year include an orientation for first-time attendees. Also new this year is an Early-Bird Session from 7:30-8:30 a.m. on Wednesday. Additions to the exhibit hall include an Innovation Lounge  — a partnership with the Metropolitan District of Southern California — and the Exhibit Hall Breakfast. Both events will be held on Wednesday.
