Overview of Event

Each year, typically in early February, NASECA-WI hosts the state’s largest event focused solely on erosion control and stormwater management. This two-day conference is divided into an erosion & sediment control focus (day 1) and a stormwater focus (day 2) so you can attend one day or both to suit your interests. NASECA-WI strives to offer topics that enhance attendees professional development including a mix of regulatory topics, best management practices, project reviews, and other industry information. We are excited to offer a trade show component to the annual conference in order to give attendees the opportunity to learn more about the products and services they use every day. The Annual Conference & Trade Show offers up to 10 CE for full conference registration, which may apply toward PE requirements, in addition to 1 credit hour of professional conduct and ethics. Continuing education offered may be submitted for credit toward Wisconsin’s Department of Safety & Professional Services credentials including: Commercial Building Inspector, Dwelling Contractor Qualifier, Journeyman Plumber Restricted Service, Master Plumber Restricted Service, Utility Contractor, and UDC Construction Inspector.
