Dam Safety 2020: Presenter Toolbox

Congratulations on being selected as a Dam Safety 2020 speaker! The Presenter's Toolbox will be updated regularly to help you prepare for the conference.

Conference Update - Over the last two months, ASDSO has been evaluating alternative options for the annual Dam Safety 2020 Conference. Like thousands of other conferences, we have decided to put health and safety first and transition from the traditional face-to-face model to a full virtual conference. A significant decision making factor was the California reopening schedule and the uncertainty of having the ability to hold large gatherings by September. Another significant component was ensuring that attendees will be able to achieve the high-quality conference experience that they have come to expect from ASDSO. We have selected a digital platform that will provide attendees with a full conference experience, including keynotes, concurrent sessions, a packed exhibit hall, and networking opportunities. ASDSO is still holding the conference during the fourth week of September. We are working to have full conference details ready to announce by June 15. Watch your email and this page for future updates.
