10:15 – 11:00 Presentation - Gary Beverly, CWAG's Chairperson of the Policy Committee, will start with an informative, nuts and bolts presentation that will discuss the threats to the Verde River, the status of the Big Chino Pipeline, and the implications of proposed major developments on our water supplies.

11:30 – 12:00 Breakout #1 - In order to learn more about our committee work, members can choose to attend one of four sub-groups, each chaired by a CWAG Committee Chairperson: Science, Policy, Education and Outreach. Committee Chairs will describe their mandate and examples of both past and planned activities. The sessions will be informal and give members the chance to explore how they might learn more about water as they participate in the growing number of CWAG activities.
12:00 – 12:45 Lunch - A complimentary lunch with beverages will be served. The menu will respect vegan and gluten-free diets. A morning snack will also be available.
