Featured Speakers

April 6 & 7, 2017


We are very excited to announce two of our plenary speakers....

Jeff Kightlinger
Our opening keynote speaker will be Jeff Kightlinger, general manager and chief executive officer for The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. As general manager, he manages the District's $1.8 billion annual budget and 1,800 employees to ensure the safe and reliable delivery of high quality water every day throughout Southern California. As the general manager of the largest municipal water provider in the nation delivering an average of over 2 billion gallons of water a day to 19 million customers, Jeff finds himself at the epicenter of most major water issues in California and tries to successfully navigate the fault lines. We look forward to hearing how he views the emerging water policy terrain.

Lois Henry
Our lunch speaker on Thursday, April 6 will be Lois Henry, a columnist and investigative reporter with the Bakersfield Californian since 1990. Lois is known for tackling tough issues and her extensive reporting on California water. Her columns include water issues impacting the entire state as well as those impacting her local community. She is a wealth of knowledge and very candid. We expect a lively lunch conversation.
