The Congreso de las Acequias is the state-wide governing body of the NMAA, comprised of regional delegates across the state. The annual meeting is held in the fall of each year to pass resolutions that guide the strategic direction of the NMAA, and to elect the eleven-member Concilio. Every year, we're drawing in more and more folks who are dedicated to the cause. The NMAA hopes to continue building the movement throughout the state, protecting our land and water resources for future generations of acequia farmers and ranchers.
The 2012 Congreso de las Acequias, "New Mexico Centennial: Acequias Past, Present, and Future" was held at the Lodge at Santa Fe on Saturday, November 17th. We're thankful for all the attendees who took the time to celebrate us that day. The event brought in nearly 200 participants, including new and returning attendees. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive and we welcome suggestions and comments that will guide us toward an even better event next year.
We are truly grateful for the support from our members and advocates. The NMAA was pleased with the outcome – the 2012 Congreso de las Acequias was a great success and we hope to see you next year!
