North Carolina’s Water Resources Research Institute will host its 26th WRRI Annual Conference on March 20 and 21. The conference will be held in person at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. Registration for the 2024 Annual Conference is now open. Rates and additional information can be found on the NC WRRI website.

The WRRI Annual Conference brings together researchers, students, practitioners, nonprofits and state agency staff with the common goal of sharing and distributing the latest water research and providing networking space to connect and learn from each other. 

Oral and poster presentations, interactive sessions, and lightning talks will showcase a variety of water-related topics. Highlights include water resource management, water treatment and public health, wetland and lake management, nature-based solutions, water quality and emerging contaminants and more. The full agenda will be available on the conference website in February.

“What I value most about this conference is that the attendees represent industry, non-profits, government, and academia and there is a focus on translational research that can support communities in solving complex water problems,” says Courtney Di Vittorio, Assistant Professor, Wake Forest University and 2023 Annual Conference attendee.

WRRI invites organizations that want to take part in this vital opportunity for learning and sharing amongst water resource professionals to sponsor this year’s event. 

“Sponsors are able to put their organizations’ names in front of hundreds of colleagues and new connections. We offer a variety of sponsorship benefits,” says Kaitlin Tucker, WRRI’s coordinator for research and engagement. Visit the WRRI website to learn how to become a sponsor.
