 2024 Spring Membership Meeting

Date: Wednesday, May 1, 2024
Time: 
10 am - 4 pm
Location:
 Alcovy Conservation Center
11600 Hazelbrand Rd. NE Covington, GA 30014

Join water advocates from around the state as we gather to discuss water policy and issues in Georgia. Let's work together to determine next steps and learn what you can do in your watershed to further the goals of the Coalition and what the Coalition can do for you.

On May 1st, we will review the 2024 legislative session and decide on the Coalition's next legislative priorities. We will also discuss various GWC projects and initiatives, including our Hazardous Waste Trust Funds pilot project and the next Biennial Report process.

We'll also learn about Georgia’s statewide Adopt A Stream and Rivers Alive programs and hear from Chattahoochee Riverkeeper about their Neighborhood Water Watch citizen water quality monitoring program.

Stay after the meeting and socialize with your fellow water advocates during Happy Hour!

The meeting's full agenda will be added closer to the event date.

Travel Stipends

Stipend amounts will vary depending on distance travelled to meeting. Member groups who apply will receive a minimum $150 grant. Once we see how many groups are requesting assistance, we will determine amounts of grants. One person from each organization should apply for travel stipends for all participants from their organization. One check will be sent to each organization. Every effort will be made to equitably distribute our travel funds so that all groups requesting a stipend will receive some level of assistance.

To apply or ask questions about travel stipends, please contact Gina Rogers at Gina@gwf.org.
