Message from KYGWA Board regarding 2017 Trade Show

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Kentucky Groundwater Association, greetings to you all!  It is our sincere hope that this finds you all well and eager to get another year started.

First of all, let me apologize for the late date getting information to you about our 2017 trade show.  There have been several changes in the KYGWA, and the members of the Board of Directors are all very excited about growing our membership and the drilling industry in Kentucky.  We believe that this year’s show will be another step forward for the Association and a great platform for you, the Driller, to interact with suppliers, regulators, and industry leaders.  It is our sincere hope that you will strongly consider attending this year and for many years to come.

Once again, we are holding the show at the Holiday Inn Louisville East – Hurstbourne.  The facility is located at 1325 South Hurstbourne Parkway in Louisville.  There is a special Trade Show rate for rooms, but you MUST mention that you are with the KYGWA Trade Show.  Please make your reservations by calling the hotel as soon as possible at 502.426.2600.  IN ORDER TO GET THE REDUCED RATE, YOU MUST RESERVE YOUR ROOM NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 15, 2017!!

We are very excited about the continuing education opportunities we have to offer for this year.  Included in these is a round table discussion with the Division of Water and members of the Water Well Certification Board to discuss upcoming changes to the regulations which govern our industry.  We truly hope each of you will take advantage of this valuable opportunity to provide your input into the future of our industry.  Other items of interest include classes on geotechnical methods, pumps, and (possibly) DOT regulations.  Of course, classes may be amended due to instructor availability, but all classes will count toward your required continuing education credits.

We will also be having an auction to benefit the scholarship fund.  Please come ready to buy!  Remember, it is tax deductible!!!!

If you would like to attend this unique industry opportunity, please complete and return the Contractor Membership Application and the Trade Show Registration.  If you have ANY questions, please feel free to drop me an email at

As a final note, please consider becoming active in the Association.  Remember, this is YOUR Association.  We strive to represent your interests on the local, state and national level, but without your input, we cannot know your opinions on key issues.

We look forward to seeing each of you on March 2nd and 3rd in Louisville!

Kentucky Groundwater Association
Todd W. Mills, Vice President
