The packet you received at the on-site registration desk includes your name badge, the tickets for events you have ordered, PDH information, and general announcements.
The dress code for the Congress is business casual (i.e. slacks, casual dresses) to business attire (i.e. neckties, business suits). Meeting room temperatures will vary, so wear layered clothing to ensure your personal comfort. We also recommend attendees wear comfortable shoes. Please note that certain events may have specific details on attire and you should refer to the event for more information.
Badge Policy and Ribbons
Your Congress registration name badge is your admission to the educational sessions. Please wear your badge at all times. Tickets are required for the pre- and post-Congress events, meals, and special events. Please be sure to bring your tickets with you to each event as you will not be admitted without a ticket. Ribbons will be available at the Registration Desk. ASCE recommends you remove your badge when leaving the hotel.
**Recycle Your Badge Holder**
Please help ASCE stay “green” and reduce extra costs by returning your badge holder at the end of the Conference in the receptacles provided by the Registration Desk.
Technical and Institute Operations Committees host annual meetings at the World Environmental & Water Resources Congress. Individuals attending the Congress are encouraged to attend committee meetings if they are interested in getting involved. A complete schedule of committee meetings will be available soon.
Please note that requests for committee meeting space were due on Friday, March 1st 2013.
Professional Development Hours (PDHs)
In your registration packet is the PDH form for EWRI. You may earn PDHs, which are nationally recognized units of record, by attending Conference concurrent sessions and short courses. There will be monitors with sign-in sheets in each room to ensure accurate reporting of hours earned. Please note there are differences from state to state in continuing education requirements for professional engineering licensure. Each state licensing board has the final authority to approve course, credits, PDHs, and other methods of earning credits in that state. ASCE strongly recommends that individuals regularly check with their state licensing boards for specific continuing education requirements in their jurisdictions that affect professional engineering licensure and the ability to renew licensure. Information is also available on the Conference Web site for a full breakdown of the sessions being offered for credit and the hours awarded for each.
Program and Session Cancellation
ASCE reserves the right to cancel programs and/or sessions because of low registration. In the unlikely event of a cancellation, all registrants will be notified and will receive a full refund, if applicable. Programs and sessions are subject to change, and ASCE reserves the right to substitute a program, session, and/or speaker of equal caliber to fulfill the educational requirements.
