Big News from USGS is that Don Cline has accepted the AssocDirector of Water position, as Bill Werkheiser moves into the USGS DepDirector position. Don's appointment is a little unusual, as he comes in from outside USGS and the inside talent is so strong, but it looks like a strong addition to their Senior Leadership for water data and science. Kudos to Acting Director Kimball!

Congrats to Acting USGS Director Kimball! Her nomination was just approved again by the Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee and sent with a favorable recommendation for approval by the full Senate. Let's hope the Senate approves very soon

We are planning ICWP's 2016 WASHINGTON ROUNDTABLE for the 21-24Mar, to include a Planners Seminar, the Roundtable with federal agency leaders, a strategy discussion with Congressional committee staff and a discussion with USGS/Water leadership. And we've invited WSWC to join us again this year! SAVE THE DATES & RESERVE YOUR HOTEL ROOM SOON!

From Washington, DC
While we were in Little Rock, studying the development strategies for water use data, groundwater and drought plans, the USGS was recruiting new leadership for their Water Mission. Acting Director Kimball and Deputy Director Werkheiser got the results from the interview team they appointed, and invited Peter to help interview the top 3 candidates. Since Bill Werkheiser has accepted the Deputy appointment, the Associate Director position he is leaving will need immediate attention, and it is very satisfying to be able to report to you that they have very strong candidates who represent a bright future, even though Eric Evenson, Pixie Hamilton and Bill Wilbur are retiring this year (retirement party 1Dec).
Acting Director Suzette Kimball is preparing for her second Senate confirmation hearing 19Nov and wants to hire new Assoc Dir for Water by December. STAY TUNED!!

The Lewis & Clark National Park Service Midwest Regional Office was a great setting to discuss water management and policy for the 2015 Strategic Planning Meeting in Omaha.

Gathering in the Bison Meeting Room, our view overlooked the Missouri River. The sustainable, green building was the perfect setting, complete with a fascinating tour by our thoughtful hosts.
