Water Education Foundation’s 2019 Water Summit
Save the Date - Oct. 30 in Sacramento
This daylong conference will be held October 30, 2019 at a new location along the Sacramento River in Sacramento. The annual Water Summit, now in its 36th year, features top policymakers and leading stakeholders providing the latest information and viewpoints on issues impacting water across California and the West.
As major deadlines loom in California for the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act and voluntary settlement agreements involving rivers that lead to the Delta, the theme for this year’s summit is Water Year 2020: A Year of Reckoning. Beyond these regulatory updates, water managers and stakeholders are dealing with a “new normal” as unprecedented episodes of drought, flooding and wildfire challenge the status quo and demand improved approaches. This year’s theme reflects the upcoming transitions, as well as ongoing efforts to improve water management and policy.
At the summit, attendees will have the opportunity to network with a variety of stakeholders, including water district managers and board members, state and federal agency officials and regulators, city and county government officials, farmers, environmentalists, attorneys, consultants, engineers, business executives and public interest groups.
A few things to look forward to at the 2019 Water Summit:
- Learning more about current water issues in California and across the West from key policy-makers, stakeholders and experts
- Enjoying a reception overlooking the Sacramento River with time to network with speakers and other attendees
- Bidding during the silent auction that benefits our Water Leaders program with items such as lunches with key people in the water world, hotel stays and wine baskets, and kayak and rafting trips
Sponsorship opportunities are available for networking coffee breaks, lunch or reception. Information coming soon!
