Board Members

The Colorado Water Congress is governed by a Board of 34 Directors who reflect the diverse geographic and professional interests of the water community. Each Director represents one of the geographic, municipal and business, and professional interest categories defined by our membership. Click on a board member's picture for more information.

​Responsibilities of the Board include periodically reviewing and approving the Water Congress mission and strategic direction, annual budget, programs, and key financial transactions.

The Colorado Water Congress Board of Directors meets four times annually and holds a planning retreat each year.
