Leadership Training

In 2014 TAGD launched a “GCD 101” training initiative.  Our Leadership Training course is designed for GCD board members and new general managers or staff members who would benefit from a comprehensive overview of local government laws, groundwater science and policy, and other matters related to groundwater management. The one day course includes a review of four fundamental sectors in groundwater management: GCD governance, groundwater science, groundwater case law, and state agencies and legislation.

Upcoming Courses

TAGD plans to host a Leadership Training in the fall of 2017. Stayed tuned for more details.
