2017 Annual Meeting

For 111 years, ASSE International has been bringing the industry together to improve the performance and reliability of products and professionals. By working together, we protect the health and safety of the public.

At the 2017 ASSE International Annual Meeting, held Nov. 7-10 at the Hilton Palacio Del Rio in San Antonio, attendees can participate in meetings for ASSE programs, gain knowledge through educational seminars and courses, celebrate member achievements, and network with industry professionals.

ASSE International is more than just a plumbing organization. We are a team of doers who are dedicated to moving the industry forward and protecting the health of our neighbors. Our programs and members are dispersed in the plumbing, mechanical, water quality, medical gas, and fire protection communities (among others), and range from manufacturers, engineers and contractors, to students, instructors and administrators.

ASSE's programs are developed through true industry consensus. This means that experts around the country – from all segments of varying industries – gather to determine performance requirements, testing criteria, and guidelines for products, and for professionals who work with these products. The ASSE International Annual Meeting is where the magic happens. It's four days of valuable information, input, education, networking, idea sharing, advice, and camaraderie can only be experienced through attending.
