We were looking forward to presenting the 2021 Governor’s Conference on the Future of Water in Kansas as an in-person event, especially after having to forego an in-person conference last year.

In the interest of protecting the public health, the Department of Administration's most recent guidelines for state agencies strongly discourage in-person meetings. Therefore, the 2021 Governor’s Conference on the Future of Water in Kansas will not be taking place in person this year but instead will be a VIRTUAL conference, November 17 & 18. More details, a tentative agenda, and registration information will be available in the coming soon. We look forward to you joining us next month virtually!

The conference brings together scientists, water managers, state and federal officials and legislators, city and county administrators, environmental organizations and citizens who share an interest in Kansas water resources.

Registration Information

Please note registration to attend will be free for all attendees.
