Approximately 275 people attended the WRRC’s 2016 Annual Conference, “#AZwaterfuture: Tech, Talk, and Tradeoffs” at the University of Arizona Student Union Memorial Center on Monday, March 21st.
Attendees came from 23 communities throughout Arizona and six Southwestern states. They were treated to talks and panel discussions from a full roster of experts and innovators from water technology, communication, education, policy, and management fields. Farmers shared experiences with irrigated and dryland farming, and keynote speakers offered lessons learned from high-level positions and programs with major impacts on water issues. At lunch, Hunter Moore, Governor Ducey’s Natural Resources Policy Advisor provided the latest on the Governor’s Water Initiative, including the Water Augmentation Council. A poster session after lunch provided an opportunity for conferences goers learn about ongoing research and programs and to mingle with colleagues and new acquaintances.
Student posters were judged during the day and the winners were awarded cash prizes provided by Netafim, one of the 16 conference sponsors. The winning student posters were University of Arizona Students: first, Aloah Pope, second, Tirthankar Roy, and third, Benjamin Richmond and Saige Williams. Interactions in the digital realm were featured during the post-conference reception, with stations set up to monitor the conference’s Twitter conversation, introduce the new University of Arizona Water Network, and engage participants in exploring the “Beyond the Mirage” web experience and build their own documentaries.
