From email from DARCA (John McKenzie):

DARCA will be hosting its 12th Annual Convention on February 26-28, 2014. The convention will be held at the Plaza Event Center in Longmont, Colorado, 1850 Industrial Circle, Longmont, CO 80501.

During the three day conference, a wide variety of speakers will discuss their views on timely subjects facing ditch and reservoir companies. This year’s conference is entitled: From Drought to Deluge- Dealing with Uncertainty. The speakers will be addressing flood and recovery issues along the Front Range along with other topics. There will also be three concurrent workshops on the final day of the conference: 1) Water Accounting for Ditch Companies (1/2 day); 2) Conserved Water Statutes – DARCA’s Role (1/2 day); and 3) Information Technologies for Ditch Companies – Web Pages, Excel, and GIS (full day).

You may find of particular interest the pre-convention workshop on Wednesday, February 26, also at the Plaza Event Center. The workshop, Creating Efficiencies and Reducing Transaction Costs for Ditch Companies, will explore how ditch companies can increase their financial viability in today’s complex world.
