Call for speakers, Rochester NY water conservation workshop 3/26/10

As an independent consultant, I am organizing a one-day workshop on water conservation and wastewater treatment, on March 26, 2010, in Rochester NY, at the Rochester Museum and Science Center. I am inviting brewers interested in speaking on the topics of water savings in the brewhouse, and wastewater treatment, to send me a proposal by January 15, email

Your proposal should include a one-page summary outline of your talk,  target 45-55 minutes in length. Until I have found full sponsors for the workshop, I am unable to offer speaker stipends, so please be prepared to pay for your own travel. The workshop registration fee will be waived for speakers.  If you are interested in sponsorship, please send me a note.

Thanks to everyone who attended the Great Lakes Craft Brewers & Water Conservation Conference in October 2009, especially our sponsor, the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co. Dick Leinenkugel, Secretary of Commerce for the state of Wisconsin, gave the keynote address, and Jake Leinenkugel, president of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co. spoke at the SPLASH! Reception at Discovery World.   Attendees enjoyed presentations from Bridgeport Brewing Co. (Jeff Edgerton); MillerCoors Brewing Co. (Troy Rysewyk), New Glarus Brewing Co. (Dan Carey), Odell Brewing Co. (Doug Odell), and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. (Fred Strachan), Todd Ambs, director of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Robin Shepard of the UWEX, and many others.  A half-day tour of the New Glarus Brewing Co. included lunch and tastings donated by president Deb Carey and "behind the ropes" tours with Dan Carey and Randy Barr. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this all-volunteer run event.
A review of the October conference appears in this month’s Great Lakes Brewing News and copies of presentations from key speakers are posted online at, under the speakers bios.
Online registration for the Rochester workshop will be announced with the schedule of confirmed speakers later this month.  Early registration fee will be $55 per person until March 1, 2010, and $75 per person thereafter. Registration is limited to 150 attendees. Thank you for your support of water conservation, craft brewing and the Great Lakes,
