The Conservancy’s hydrologist, Jeanmarie Haney, recently was appointed to Yavapai County’s Water Technical Advisory Committee (TAC).

The six TAC members have expertise in water resources and water management and are providing technical guidance on the often complex hydrologic, geologic, and engineering issues facing the Water Advisory Committee in its decision-making process.

As government relations director, Lombard works with government officials, interest groups and local communities to shape and promote policies that ensure abundant fresh water, clean air, wild spaces and plentiful wildlife remain essential parts of Arizona for future generations. Most recently, the Conservancy worked with the Arizona Legislature to pass off-highway vehicle protections, important water funding and protections while leading state trust land reform.

The Arizona Capitol Time’s Leaders of the Year in Public Policy began in 2007 to recognize excellence in several categories including education, health care, transportation and the environment. This year’s ceremony featured Keynote Speaker Aaron Brown, former CNN anchor and current Walter Cronkite Professor of Journalism at Arizona State University. Governor Jan Brewer, Senate President Robert Burns, House Speaker Kirk Adams and Senate Majority Whip Steve Pierce also gave remarks.
