Overview

Conferences

Each year, the Foundation organizes conferences and workshops devoted to specific issues surrounding water. The Foundation’s annual Executive Briefing, held each spring in Sacramento, features speakers from stakeholder groups, the Legislature and governmental agencies who play important roles in making policy decisions about water. Past conferences have focused on climate change, the Delta, flood management and drought. Many of these conferences are conducted in partnership with state agencies and other organizations.
