As the year draws quickly to a close, I hope you can join us to celebrate positive impact made by Water Collaborative members at our Holiday Social on Thurs., Dec. 15. All Water Collaborative members and friends are invited to join us for at the Warehouse, 3014 Dauphine St., from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  We'll have drinks, hors d'oeuvres and music on the rooftop!

A brief Annual Meeting presentation will take place at 6:30 p.m., during which we will recognize some of the leaders in our midst, introduce the 2017 Steering Committee and unveil a special surprise! Trust me, you don't want to miss it. But if you have to, members can view the slate of nominees to our Steering Committee and vote online.
