Registration for the 16th Annual World Aquatic Health™ Conference (WAHC) is now open. The WAHC will be held in Williamsburg, Virginia at the Williamsburg Lodge, on October 16–18. Opening registration discounts end on May 31st.
When the WAHC convenes in October, aquatic professionals from all over will take a deep dive into an ongoing effort vital to the public health—the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC). The WAHC has long hosted the Council for the Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC) and this year the conference will devote an entire series of talks to discussion of the MAHC.
Presentations on efforts to develop and promote adoption of the MAHC will feature speakers from CDC, CMAHC officials and operators directly involved in MAHC implementation. Douglas Sackett, Executive Director of the CMAHC, and Dr. Michael Beach, Associate Director for Healthy Water with CDC, will also host a MAHC listening session, where there will be a review and discussion on how the MAHC is influencing aquatics. Additionally, they will host a MAHC session dedicated to air quality in indoor aquatic facilities and how the MAHC and CMAHC are the vehicles to change aquatic facility design and operation to improve indoor air quality.
