The John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute will host a special “Leadership Roundup” on October 28, 2013 at the UTPB Library & Lecture Center. The title of this panel discussion is, “Creating the Cost of Tomorrow’s Water…Today!”. Panelists will engage in conversation and analysis about Proposition 6 SWIFT (State Water Implementation Fund Texas). We seek to better inform the public in advance of the upcoming November 5th special elections. Panelists include Senator Kel Seliger, Dr. Kevin Urbanczyk, Dr. Tom Davis, Pat Canty, Bech Bruun. Our moderator is Darrell Peckham, a hydrogeologist with Water Quest, Inc.
The purpose of a Leadership Roundup is to assemble a small group of Texas leaders around a topic of importance to both the Permian Basin community and to the state of Texas. By so doing, we can raise the awareness level and serve as a trigger for follow-on action by panelists, viewers, and other participants. Roundups will be filmed and subsequently edited so that TV-quality final versions can be shared with Basin PBS for possible subsequent airing throughout the state.
