Who are we
Now in its 24th year, the California Water
Policy Conference is the premier event in
the State that brings together leaders from
the agricultural, urban water and
environmental communities to discuss the
current policy issues impacting California’s
water. Every year over 300 participants from
around the State attend this conference to
network with their colleagues, listen to
perspectives they may have not heard before
and learn about new programs and ideas.
The conference agenda is put together by a diverse planning committee that strives to identify the most current topics and best speakers to offer insight and debate with the goal being to educate, enlighten and inform our attendees. We hope you will join us at this year’s conference.
