Portland 2013 Annual Conference: Call for Special Sessions!

Here at the Jacksonville AWRA Conference I am enjoying the first day.

We are already planning for the 2013 AWRA Conference in Portland, OR, that Brenda Bateman of OWRD and I will be co-chairing – here is a call for special session proposals:

Instructions are on the PDF or here. Proposals are due 21 January 2013.

If you would like to propose and take responsibility for arranging a special session on a water-related topic (and it does not have to be specific to the Pacific Northwest) please consider submitting a proposal. You do not need to an AWRA member.

I would love to see a session on a Columbia River/Basin compact– not a treaty (which we have) but a compact among the states. I am trying to get someone to develop a session. We may not need a compact now, but that is why we need to develop one now.

As this is my last meeting as a Board meeting, let me show you my badge, with a couple of special ribbons included to reflect my stature:
