Iowa Water Conference 2016 Recap

Some days you wake up with one plan, but life happens and things change. Yesterday, instead of a quiet productive day at the office for my part time job at AgSolver, I was given the last minute opportunity to attend the Iowa Water Conference.

I agree! Collaboration is key. We need to stop screaming at one another and look for workable solutions together. Here are a few more quotes I want to be sure to remember from the conference:
