Save the Date Now for the 2020 Governor's Water Conference!
The Kansas Water Office is excited to announce the annual Governor’s Conference on the Future of Water in Kansas will be November 9-10, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita, Kansas. This is the ninth year for the conference and it will include a Welcome Event and early registration Sunday evening, November 8 as well as breakouts sessions on the first day of the conference.
The event will highlight the latest policy and research developments of water issues in Kansas as well as updates to the Kansas Water Vision and its integration with the Kansas Water Plan. The conference historically attracts 600 or more attendees, including state and Congressional legislators as well as staff, local, state and federal officials, organization representatives, and citizens who share an avid interest in our state’s water resources. We hope you will mark your calendar and make plans to attend this exciting event.
