The Greater Hermiston Area Chamber of Commerce is kicking off its 2018 Business to Business series with a breakfast on Jan. 23 focused on water rights and local water projects.

The event, held at the new irrigated ag building at the Hermiston Agricultural Research and Extension Center, 2121 N First St., will begin with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. and end at noon. It is part of the chamber’s effort this year to replace monthly hour-long luncheons with longer educational events once a quarter.

The event agenda, produced in partnership with the Oregon Water Coalition, begins with a networking breakfast at 7:30 a.m. and opening remarks at 7:50 a.m.

Updates on local water projects by Hermiston City Manager Byron Smith, Port of Morrow water quality supervisor Miff Devlin and Umatilla City Manager Russ Pelleberg will begin at 8:15 a.m.

A presentation on the economic impact study of the Mid-Columbia Basin water development project by John Audley Consulting and JR Cook of Northeast Oregon Water Association will start at 9 a.m., and “Water Rights Bootcamp” with Laura Schroeder of Shroeder Law Offices will go from 10 a.m. to noon.

For more information or to RSVP for the breakfast contact the chamber at 541-567-6151, www.hermistonchamber.com or info@hermistonchamber.com.
