Welcome Message for the ACWA 2014 Fall Conference & Exhibition

I would like to cordially invite you to attend ACWA’s 2014 Fall Conference & Exhibition, “Moment of Truth:  One State, One Water Future” December 2-5, 2014 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego.

After weeks of intense negotiations among top legislative leaders, representatives of the governor’s office and various water interests — most notably ACWA — voters will go to the polls in November and cast votes on a $7.545 billion water bond that has been five years in the making. The compromise bond contains funding for above and below-ground storage projects, regional water reliability, safe drinking water, water recycling, water conservation, groundwater management and cleanup, watershed protection and statewide flood management.  But our work is not done.

Federal and state leaders are being invited to deliver keynote speeches.  Program session topics currently being planned include:  groundwater management, water storage, water conservation success and challenges, dry 2015, forest management, and energy issues.  There will also be legal, finance, energy, CDPH operator contact hours, and human resources programs scheduled for professionals seeking continuing education credits.

During conference week you will be able to choose from over 80 meeting and program sessions.  You will be informed and updated on a variety of local, statewide and federal water issues and polices – important and critical information that you can take back to your agencies and organizations.  And as always, there will be multiple opportunities to network and connect with California’s water community leaders.

The Exhibit Hall will be filled with vendors who products and services may offer you just the right solutions.  See what’s new in the water industry!

Look for more information to come as conference program sessions and keynote speakers are confirmed.

I look forward to seeing you all in San Diego!

John A. Coleman

ACWA President
