Call for Presentations for the 2018 State of Water Conference!

We are now accepting proposals for presentations at the 2018 State of Water Conference, a biennual event that brings together up to 400 community members, elected officials, and local government and agency staff.

The conference focuses on helping all Minnesotans effectively use their time and resources to protect the state’s lakes and rivers, providing up to 400 attendees with the information, tools, and resources needed to build local capacity and define their next steps.

Participants at past State of Water Conferences and individuals who indicated an interest in attending future events were invited to fill out a survey to help us prepare for the 2018 conference. You are encouraged to read their responses – especially those referencing presentations – as you prepare your presentation proposal.

Audience Assessment Summary

At the 2018 conference, we will also offer pre-conference workshops. These can be four- or eight-hour long sessions. You can indicate your interest in these pre-conference workshops as well as general sessions, which are a standard one-hour length. To offer multiple options, please fill out a new form for each presentation proposal. We also encourage presenters to include an interactive component in their presentation.

Specifically, consider the following topic areas when creating a presentation proposal: Water Quality and Quantity, Habitat, AIS, Agriculture, Local Capacity, and Climate Change.

We are accepting proposals until December 31, 2017.
