Overview

Conferences

Each year, the Foundation organizes conferences and workshops devoted to specific issues surrounding water. The Foundation’s annual Water Summit features speakers from stakeholder groups, the state Legislature and governmental agencies who play important roles in making policy decisions about water. Other conferences have focused on climate change, groundwater, the Delta, flood management and drought. We also host an annual Water 101 workshop as well as other workshops. Some conferences are conducted in partnership with state agencies and other organizations.
