First, the more specific to the Chambers-Clover creek watershed, the better. Presentations should be between 5-10 minutes in length and include slides or sharing of documents or webpages. There will be time for Q&A after the presentations. We may divide the presenters up into panels based on themed topics that emerge from the abstracts received. We envision having 7-10 speakers total, but if the event goes virtual we may adjust the format and number of speakers. We will record the presentations to make them available to the public afterword. Speakers should have access to internet/technology to be able to present in a virtual format.

If you’d like to submit an abstract for consideration, please do so no later than Monday, August 31, 2020 using the online submission form here: 2020 WIF Speaker Abstracts.

A link to the abstract form is also posted on the CCWC webpage.

If you have any questions about this event or your proposed topic, please don’t hesitate to contact either me (contact info below) or Barbara Ann Smolko before August 31st at 253-798-6156 or

Please share this invitation with anyone who may be interested in being a potential speaker, and save the date to attend!
