Community Workshop Series

Engaging and sharing information with municipal decision makers and the general public is one of the most important things CAW does! We host an interactive Water, Weather, Climate, and Community Workshop at least twice every year. At each workshop we seek feedback from participants to better understand their needs, and we structure our subsequent workshop to address those needs. Register for upcoming workshops and explore past workshop topics and presentations below.

The Next Workshop: stay tuned!
