Water Resources Research Center 2009 Annual Conference
In collaboration with the Morris K. Udall Foundation and Arizona Water Institute

The Water Resources Research Center at The University of Arizona is pleased to announce that registration is open for its 2009 Annual Conference. Please help us spread the word; post our announcement on your websites and bulletin boards, include it in your newsletters, and pass the information along to others.

Betsy Rieke, former Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Water and Science and Director of the Arizona Department of Water Resources, will present the opening keynote address on her experiences with major water negotiations. Planners, stakeholders and engagement professionals will share their knowledge and experiences in the field. We will also hear about new technologies and innovations applied in a range of water planning processes. As luncheon speaker, Grady Gammage will share his thoughts on the challenges facing Arizona’s water planners and stakeholders.

New to our conference this year, posters are invited that present lessons learned about stakeholder engagement in water resources planning. See CALL FOR POSTERS on the conference web site noted below. A dedicated poster session will allow time for exchange with presenters. In addition, there will be an opportunity for participants to choose one of three interactive workshops to share experiences and craft new ideas.

Anyone with an interest in water resources planning is encouraged to join us for this informative and engaging event.
