Looking for ways to increase your business? The San Diego County Water Authority, in conjunction with its 23 member agencies, will host the fourth annual networking forum, “Creating Paths to Partnerships,” on Thursday, October 17, 2002 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the San Diego Marriott Mission Valley, 8757 Rio San Diego Drive, San Diego, CA.

The purpose of this event is to inform contractors, consultants, vendors, small businesses and suppliers of the many contracting opportunities that exist in the water industry in San Diego County. In addition, the program is beneficial to businesses interested in learning about specific upcoming contract opportunities with water agencies during the next two years.

The event will include a continental breakfast, displays and exhibits, workshop sessions, networking opportunities, and a luncheon. The keynote speaker for the luncheon is Phoebe Chongchua, Community Affairs Specialist, for KGTV Channel 10.

Registration is $50 per person, with a portion of each registration fee going to the Paths to Partnerships Scholarship Program. This scholarship program was established to assist local deserving senior high school students to further their education. In May of this year, sixteen $1000 scholarships were awarded to local high school seniors through this program. Donations in addition to the registration fee are welcome and appreciated.
