Sponsored Webcasts Available to More Professionals in the Water Sector

Since switching in March to a sponsored model for webcasts, the Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) has been able to offer webcasts to water sector professionals at no cost. This has resulted in nearly double — and in some cases, triple — the number of participants. Participant feedback also has been positive.

“I learned a lot about wastewater treatment that I never knew before,” said Thomas Hill, lead engineer at Foster Wheeler Upstream (Clinton, N.J.).

“We just attended the first of four Basic Wastewater Series webcasts,” said Joe Foster, wastewater superintendent at the City of Olathe (Kan.) Public Works. The city had 11 wastewater staff members, ranging from 1 to 20 years of operational experience, view the webcast.

Sponsors provide financial support for this online education format and, in return, receive visibility through company logos, advertisements, and Web-link placements during live and archived webcasts.
