Dear IUVA Members and Potential Members,
IUVA is committed to providing news, information and education about the UV industry and emerging technology to our members and the public at large. Understanding and implementing change is key to improving the continuing learning process. We are determined to provide programs, meetings/conferences, publications that are informative, educational and a benefit to our members and the industry. Please check back to the iuva.org website regularly to get news, information and education updates.
Our event in Puerto Rico with the Professional College of Engineering and Land Surveyors (CIAPR) was extremely successful. In addition, our collaboration with NASA Scientists, NASA Space Science Day in February 2013 was well attended with over 200 high school students. A huge thanks to Howard University and NASA for their support.
On March 21, 2013, IUVA is hosting the “IUVA Special Session on UV for Drinking Water at AMERICANA,” a symposium held in Montreal, Canada, which will showcase advancements from experts in the field of drinking water and UV. Also in June the EMEA Hub division of the IUVA is partnering with TZW: DVGW-Technologiezentrum Wasser to produce a UV conference in Karlsruhe, Germany, June 4-5, 2013. The Call for Papers has been extended until April 1, 2013. For more information http://iuva.org/event/karlsruhe-germany. Registration is open along with the opportunities to purchase booth space and sponsorships.
Finally, IUVA will collaborate with the International Ozone Association (IOA) for the third annual World Congress, in Las Vegas, Nevada September 22-25, 2013. Abstracts are currently being accepted for presentation of papers at the conference, and sponsorship opportunities are available. Based on our past experience, these events will be well attended by industry leaders, scientists, engineers, students and the public.
We plan to maintain a strong momentum with a full schedule of activities, conferences, workshops and other outreach events throughout 2013 and into 2014 as we work to educate people about the benefits of using UV technologies worldwide. We also plan to explore opportunities in the development of continuing education, training and certification programs that many of our members and industry friends find very beneficial. On behalf of the IUVA leadership and members, I welcome everyone to participate, learn and envision the future of UV technology with us.
In particular, I would remind everyone that IUVA is a nonprofit organization, and we would ask you to pay your membership dues and to also consider making a donation to sustain the many activities that our organization provides to all of us. Every contribution is appreciated.
Best wishes, and thanks for all your support.
