2024 Annual Convention and Membership Meeting

The Colorado Water Congress Annual Convention is a premier event that brings together water professionals, policymakers, and stakeholders from across the state of Colorado and beyond.

The 2024 program will focus on risk, resilience, and growth. Our keynote speaker, Erica Gies, will set the stage by discussing her book, Water Always Wins: Thriving in an Age of Drought and Deluge.

During the convention, attendees can expect a series of exciting and informative presentations and panel discussions on topics that will provide valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities facing Colorado's water community.

Here is what you can expect for 2024:

  • Expert presentations on topics that may include water resource planning; legislative updates; land and water use planning; wildfire, drought and flood risk; western water priorities, and more
  • Networking with water industry professionals
  • POND reception
  • Opportunities to earn CLE credits

Engaging pre-convention workshops on topics essential to the water community:

  • Wildfire Crisis Strategy in Action!
  • Thriving in the Deluge – Managing High Flows in Colorado
  • Projects to Restore Nature Stream Systems
  • Will Gen Z Change the Way We View Water Issues?
