PaAAEL’s meetings contain pertinent information for laboratory members including relevent topics for instructing our members in different aspects of the laboratory industry. A representative of the Pennsylvania DEP accreditation program is always invited to speak at this meeting as well. The meetings are held in Harrisburg in March, State College in June, and Lancaster in October. This meeting is always held on Tuesday and follows our training seminar held the previous day. Suggestions for topics are always welcome and appreciated.
PaAAEL’s training seminars provide laboratories an inexpensive outlet for the training of their laboratory personnel. PaAAEL is able to provide CEUs for Pennsylvania water and wastewater operators at many of these seminars. PaAAEL holds three seminars per year. They are held in Harrisburg in March, State College in June, and Lancaster in October. PaAAEL also holds seminars in the Pittsburgh area following the March and October seminar when applicable. The eastern seminar is always held on Monday and is followed by our Association Meeting the next day. When a seminar is held in the Pittsburgh area, it will be held on Wednesday of the same week. Suggestions for topics are always welcome and appreciated.
The NYAAEL/PaAAEL Annual Convention and Exposition is held every summer in either Pennsylvania or New York. It is a two-day convention coupled with a trade show featuring industry representatives from all over the United States. Two sessions running concurrently provide training by industry experts on topics of interest to the laboratory community. This convention is designed to fill the needs of small to medium laboratories and stay within their training budget.
