Join us in Boulder, CO for The WaterNow Alliance Annual Summit

Communities across the nation face a new water reality. With increased drought and a changing climate, there is both an urgent need and tremendous opportunity for water leaders to accelerate the adoption of sustainable water solutions and create more resilient cities and towns.

Our Annual Summit will bring together dynamic finance, communications and water policy experts with forward thinking public officials to explore how we can jumpstart these critical solutions. WaterNow Alliance summits are unique. We tailor our event for public officials and emphasize providing attendees with tangible takeaways they can put to work in their communities immediately. View the agenda.

The event is co-sponsored by the National League of Cities, Colorado Municipal League and National Center on Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
