Join us this fall for a premier water industry event at which NWRA will be convening its yearly Leadership Forum in conjunction with its 2022 Annual Conference.

The Leadership Forum will be held the morning of November 2 and will focus on updating the association's policy priorities and strategies for the coming year.

The Annual Conference commences the afternoon of November 2 and concludes early the afternoon of November 4. It will feature leading industry and policy officials discussing water recycling, importing water via pipelines, weather forecasting and understanding farmland fallowing programs. 

We are pleased to announce that Bureau of Reclamation Commissioner Camille Calimlim Touton will be joining us as our Awards Luncheon keynote speaker as well as to participate in the traditional “15-minute meetings” with individual irrigation district and water agency representatives. NWRA is coordinating these on a first-come-first-served basis. Please click the related button below to see the meeting request form which should be filled out and send back to us via e-mail.

Finally, special continued learning education (CLE) eligible topics including the Endangered Species Act and litigation on the Rio Grande will also be available.

We look forward to seeing you in Santa Barbara!
