    Dear Friends of the California Groundwater Association:

    We are looking forward to being at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada, for one last time!

    This year, we have lined up some new topics, and revamped how we do our trade show floor schedule. Please take a moment to review the schedule below. You will notice courses that will help you in your day-to-day work, as well as help you in your business preparations and planning on how you may even retire!


    California Groundwater Association members are more than quality contractors. They are professionals dedicated to the water well industry and stewards of our water systems. The CGA Annual Convention emphasizes professionalism through continuing education, access to cutting edge technologies, and updates from the legislature and other regulatory authorities affecting your business.


    Visit the trade show held on Friday, October 18, from 12:00 to 4:30 p.m. Make sure to see all the technology in the water well industry and experience California’s largest gathering of well drilling suppliers and manufacturers and thank them for supporting CGA.


    The CGA continues to look to improving our communication with not only our members, but the groundwater industry in California as a whole! YOU are a huge part of this and we look forward to continuing working with you and for you! Active associations rely on volunteers and we have a number of opportunities for involvement! Please see a member of the Executive Committee or our new Executive Director and discuss how YOU can be a part of YOUR association and help guide our future!
