2010 conference information:

There is a critical need in Arizona for leaders—new and established—who have the ability and will to address pressing water and environmental issues. The WRRC Annual 2010 Conference brought together a diverse array of participants, ranging from scientists and policymakers to educators, writers and artists, to discuss this issue. In the morning, panelists shared their experiences with how they became leaders and how leadership can be nurtured and developed. During roundtable sessions and workshops, participants had the opportunity to begin crafting their vision for creating new water and environmental leadership for Arizona.
