Our 24th Year

The California Water Policy Conference Planning Committee is developing a stimulating conference agenda that will take the leading water issues of the day head-on and bring all participants into the heart of the debate and problem-solving.



Our noted speakers will include...

Our Thursday morning keynote speaker will be Pat Mulroy. Ms. Mulroy is the legendary former general manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority. Now a senior fellow of climate adaptation and environmental policy at Brookings Mountain West, Ms. Mulroy also holds the Maki Distinguished Faculty Associate position at the Desert Research Institute. Ms. Mulroy will share her perspectives on addressing the water management challenges we are now facing and can anticipate throughout the West.
Continuing our practice of featuring a noted author as our lunch speaker on Thursday, we are honored that organic farmer and author David Mas Masumoto will be joining us. Mas will share his unique and powerful personal perspective regarding California water management and agriculture. The author of seven books, including the eloquent Epitaph for a Peach, Mas is also a columnist for The Fresno Bee and a regular contributor to the Sacramento Bee.
Friday morning's opening speaker is Justice Gregory Hobbs, Jr. Justice Hobbs practiced environmental, land use, transportation and water law for 23 years before becoming a member of the Colorado Supreme Court. He currently serves as Vice-President for the Colorado Foundation for Water Education and a Co-Convener of the Water Judges' Educational Project, Dividing the Waters.

Justice Hobbs will share his perspective regarding the current status of the Colorado River and its place in meeting the water needs of the basin states, drawing upon decades of experience at the center of controversies and the development of policies that guide management today and will continue to shape the future of the River.
