Greeting’s KLEA members,

What a year we have had thus far! We hope this correspondence finds everyone well. The KLEA Board of Directors has enjoyed receiving feedback from everyone and has used that feedback to coordinate some events and topics that will fulfill educational needs and keep KLEA fresh on everyone’s mind. First, to answer a very popular question, it has been relayed to us that ABC or lab certification CEU’s can be satisfied with regular water/wastewater operator training courses as well as lab training courses as long as there is proof of attendance. Hopefully, that helps everyone in need of CEU’s. Secondly, our plan is to periodically send out presentations from past KLEA conferences that revisit pertinent topics and keep everyone abreast on past and present laboratory education information. We will send these out via email and post them on our website as we lead up to our conference in May 2022. Last and most exciting, we have organized a meet and greet at the new Olathe Water Laboratory on October 12th from 11:30 am-1 PM. Lunch and beverages will be provided by our friends at Midland Scientific so be on the lookout for additional details and an RSVP coming soon. So, that’s the plan but there still could be more! For additional communications and updates go to the KLEA website and don’t forget to mark as “not junk” so you can continue to receive our emails.

Best Regards,

KLEA Board of Directors
