The goal of this committee is to bring InWMC members and others who care about Indiana’s water resources together in one place to foster innovation and opportunities for collaboration through networking. The InWMC is always on the lookout for new ideas for symposiums, field days, and other events to benefit our members. When it comes time to start planning a new event, the Events Planning Committee springs into action to make it happen.
This committee works to plan fun and engaging events that bring InWMC members and others who care about Indiana’s water resources together in one place to foster innovation and opportunities for collaboration through networking.
One of the InWMC’s most popular events is its annual symposium. Starting with its first meeting in 2008, the Indiana Water Monitoring Council (InWMC) has worked to bring the water resources community together to improve communication, coordination and collaboration among those working to understand, restore and protect Indiana waters.
We’ve held several symposiums, often in partnership with the Indiana Water Resources Association, at low/no cost to our members and the public covering such topics as:
- How to address Indiana’s water resource issues through water monitoring collaborations (2010)
- Indiana’s readiness for a severe drought (2012)
- Indiana Energy and Water (2013)
- Indiana agricultural and water monitoring (2014)
- Low-head dam removal and stream restoration (2015)
- Innovative water monitoring techniques and uses (2016)
The council has also organized field days to demonstrate the different techniques used by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, the U.S. Geological Survey, and Hoosier Riverwatch volunteers to monitor Indiana streams.
If you are a detail-oriented individual and like planning great events, the InWMC Event Planning Committee would love to work with you. Contact XXXXX to learn more about how you can help to bring great minds together for the benefit of Indiana water resources.
