NMAACongresodelasAcequias 15The NMAA is preparing for the annual Congreso de las Acequias as we celebrate another growing season and the beautiful spring and summer rains.  The Congreso is the only statewide gathering of acequia leaders where we share knowledge and create strategies for protecting our precious acequias and the water that flows through them.  Our theme this year is “Unidos, Defendemos Nuestras Aguas” and is co-hosted by the South Valley Regional Acequia Association. 

This year, the Congreso de las Acequias will take place on Saturday, November 21st at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque from 9:00am to 5:00pm. $25 registration fee at the door, or take advantage of our Early-bird registration rate and pay $20 until Nov 17th.

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.
