On behalf of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Environmental & Water Resources Institute, I am excited to invite you to the 2010 World Environmental & Water Resources Congress in Providence, Rhode Island, May 16-20, 2010.

The Congress Steering Committee is putting together a program that is intellectually and professionally stimulating as well as FUN. The program will include outstanding plenary sessions and technical presentations that address the Challenges of Change that we as a society are facing. It will also be the site of our annual committee meetings and offer fun social events that allow us to renew old friendships and make new ones.

The World Environmental & Water Resources Congress is an important opportunity for professionals in the environmental and water fields to convene and focus on topics of the day. This year’s technical program focuses on the Challenges of Change. It is imperative that the environmental and engineering community take a leadership role in addressing the changes that are so prevalent in today’s society, whether they be technical, economic, social, environmental or political.

Please join us in Providence and let the world benefit not only from the technical program, but also from your personal involvement.
