CFWE is proud to announce our 2014 class of Water Leaders! This diverse and talented group of mid-level water professionals have started a journey to develop their leadership potential. The first training on March 17-18 focused on self-awareness and functional team-building. The group also examined how regional leaders have effectively built water teams in northeastern Colorado by numerous guest presentations and excursions at the Poudre Learning Center in Greeley. Subsequent trainings will be in Fraser on May 15-16, Pueblo on July 31-August 1 and Denver on September 18-19. Join us in welcoming them to your community!

Since 2006, the Colorado Foundation for Water Education’s Water Leaders Program has provided training in conflict negotiation and interpersonal communication to over 80 participants across Colorado. Water Leaders participants benefit from extensive self-assessment and networking opportunities with similarly accomplished colleagues.

A great program to encourage a better understanding of state water policy. CML and municipal leaders offer congrats to the participants and kudos to CFWE!
Thank you, Sam! We also appreciate CML’s commitment to water issues. The City of Greeley has a fascinating history of water development and leadership – Harold Evans gave our group quite a thought-provoking presentation.
