Successful 2017 Annual Dinner
Celebrated by water industry leaders throughout the Golden State, SCWC’s 33rd Annual Dinner was marked by energy, engagement and plenty of water talk, both onstage and off. SCWC’s marquee event saw over 325 stakeholders come together from as diverse sectors as agriculture and local government, water and labor, and environment and business.
With Executive Director Charley Wilson at the mic, we recognized former City of Laguna Woods Councilmember Bert Hack for his years of dedication to Southern California’s water challenges.
SCWC was pleased to honor California Secretary of Natural Resources John Laird with the 2017 Harriett Wieder Leadership Award for his decades of public service and longtime commitment to water conservation, climate change adaptation and statewide water supply reliability. Secretary Laird engaged attendees with a keynote discussion not only addressing some of Southern California’s most pressing water challenges, but also articulating realistic solutions given today’s climate – under Secretary Laird’s leadership, California is closer than ever to a comprehensive Delta solution.
This year’s Annual Dinner was one for the books, but don’t just take our word for it…
As we head toward the end of the year and SCWC looks forward to a productive, decisive 2018 – we take a moment to acknowledge our sponsors. Thank you for your commitment to Southern California’s water future. Your support is vital!
