From email from Doug Kemper:

Our Summer Conference is now just six weeks away. I am writing to give you some quick updates.

Registration for our Summer Conference that will be held August 23 to 26 at the Sheraton Steamboat Springs is proceeding quite well. We have enjoyed a long run of great summer conferences at the Sheraton and we hope you will be able to join us as we celebrate our last time at the Sheraton. (The hotel has been sold and will no longer hold events such as ours.)

Interim Water Resources Review Committee
We are pleased to have the Interim Committee with us again this year. This is an excellent opportunity to meet with your legislators early as they prepare water legislation for 2017.

Workshops
We have 7 workshops this year in addition to an extensive workshop on Stream Management Planning. The latter is actually a co-event presented by the Colorado Water Trust with funding from the Colorado Water Conservation Board. A separate registration is required for this workshop and space will be very limited.

Room Reservations
Room reservations at the Sheraton are filling up quickly. We are urging attendees to get their room reservations in soon.

Conference Program
We are finalizing program speakers. Please look for updates as speakers are confirmed and adjustments to the program are made.

We are pleased to have just confirmed Sue Sims, Group Manager for External Affairs for the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California who is managing a $2.2 Million water conservation campaign called H2Love. Also confirmed is Jennifer Persike, Director of External Affairs with the Association of California Water Agencies (our California counterpart) who under contract with the State of California is managing an $11 Million statewide public communications campaign on water conservation. They will present a workshop on Wednesday along with Denver Water’s Melissa Elliott. Sue and Jennifer are also on the main conference program on Thursday.

POND Activities
Our POND Committee has created six exciting activities on Thursday afternoon: Storm Peak Lab Tour, Hayden Generating Station Tour, Fish Creek Falls Hike, fly fishing, mountain biking, and golf. The will also host a reception, gondola ride, and an evening on the mountain with live music.

Coyote Gulch will be in Steamboat Springs live-tweeting the goings on. Don’t be bashful — say hello if you see me.
