P3S is a standing committee of CWEA.  Our committee is run by P3S professionals for P3S professionals.  We focus on offering educational opportunities through conferences, workshops, and trainings.  We meet every other month and we offer free trainings and technical presentations in conjunction with each meeting.  Time for lunch and networking is built into each event and contact hours are presented for attendance.  We also organize an annual P3S-focused conference.  You can learn more about us here.
