The Water Resources Research Center's March 27, 2020 Annual Conference, Water at the Crossroads: The Next 40 Years, is coming together as speakers are starting to confirm their participation in either presentation or moderated discussion panels.

New Interactive Elements at the 2020 WRRC Annual Conference
The WRRC's 2020 Conference, Water at the Crossroads: The Next 40 Years, will take stock of our water management progress since the passage of the 1980 Groundwater Management Act and then look to the future. How are water resources evolving and how do we ensure reliable water resources over time? The WRRC has a long history of creating timely and compelling conferences that attract water professionals, researchers, decision-makers, and more. Now, through in-conference polling technology, we can also use the conference to tap into our collective knowledge and ask ourselves the important questions that help reveal our water community's ideas and perspectives. Save the date, Friday, March 27, 2020, for a fascinating and interactive conference at the Black Canyon Conference Center, 9440 N 25th Ave, Phoenix, AZ.
The WRRC Annual Photo Contest will end on Friday, December 6.
