The annual CRWUA conference is known for the networking and hard work by attendees. One of the highlights is the opportunity to have a conversation with someone from every Colorado River Basin state, Mexico, and the Ten Tribes Partnership who has a presence on the river. In addition, there are federal and state officials, and representatives from the conservation community. This is very different and unique compared to any other conference you may attend during the year. Be sure to register and connect with old friends and make new friends.

The Lower and Upper basins Drought Contingency Plans were all the talk of last year’s annual conference. The networking and meetings during the conference really set the stage for the final agreements that were signed in May 2019.
