The 2018 Water Summit, the Water Education Foundation’s premiere event of the year, will feature critical conversations about water in California and the West revolving around the theme: Facing Reality from the Headwaters to the Delta.
The summit will be held Sept. 20 in Sacramento along California’s largest and longest river, the Sacramento River, where we’ll network at the reception outside.
Formerly called the Executive Briefing and celebrating its 35th year, the Water Summit will feature top policymakers and leading stakeholders providing the latest information and viewpoints on issues impacting water statewide. Brenda Burman, commissioner of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, will give the keynote lunch address.
It is an ideal event for water district managers and board members, state and federal agency officials, city and county government officials, farmers, environmentalists, attorneys, consultants, engineers, business executives and public interest groups.
The summit will begin at 9:30 a.m. and includes a 5 p.m. reception beside the Sacramento River where attendees will have a chance to network with speakers and other attendees.
In addition, we host a silent auction to benefit our Water Leaders program. Items up for bid often include lunches with key people in the water world, hotel stays and wine baskets, and kayak and rafting trips.
Our 2018 event will be held at the Westin Sacramento, 4800 Riverside Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95822.
Registration includes coffee and materials, gourmet lunch and hosted reception that begins at 5 p.m. beside the Sacramento River.
