North Carolina’s Water Resources Research Institute will host its 24th WRRI Annual Conference on March 23 and 24. The conference will be held in a hybrid format this year, allowing attendees to join either in person at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, or virtually via the Zoom platform. Registration for the 2022 Annual Conference is currently open.

The WRRI Annual Conference brings together scientists, students, consultants, nonprofits and state representatives with the common goal of sharing and distributing the latest water research and providing networking space for professionals to connect and learn from each other.
