CASA Connects with Water Education for Latino Leaders (WELL)
CASA recently launched a partnership with the Water Education for Latino Leaders (WELL) program through support of an upcoming webinar focusing on the water-energy nexus. The webinar, scheduled for June 24, will bring together utility experts, local elected officials, and community leaders to examine the water-energy nexus and share innovative policy solutions that will ensure sustainable water and energy for all Californians.
WELL was established in 2012 to educate local Latino elected officials on water policy and hosts a variety of conferences, regional workshops, and fellowship programs to educate elected leaders on the most pressing water issues in California. To date, WELL has worked with over 550 local elected officials through their UnTapped Fellowship program, and several CASA member agencies and associates are also WELL supporters.
CASA is pleased to begin this collaboration and we are hopeful that the ongoing relationship with WELL extends far beyond the upcoming webinar. “This is an excellent opportunity to help CASA’s membership engage with diverse constituencies, and also an opportunity for CASA to provide additional wastewater expertise and perspective to WELL’s programs.”, shared Adam Link, CASA’s Executive Director. WELL has been invited to participate in CASA’s upcoming Annual Conference August 11-13 and other future programs as well. We are very excited about this partnership and future opportunities for both groups to cross-promote education and informational items of importance to the water and wastewater community!
