River Rally

River Network is accepting workshop proposals and River Hero nominations for River Rally 2021! Submit a workshop proposal by September 30 or nominate a River Hero by October 30.

Hosted annually by River Network, River Rally provides an inspiring and energy-infused touchpoint for nonprofit groups from across the U.S. and beyond, as well as for agency and foundation representatives, industry innovators, philanthropists, academics, students, and community leaders. We bring thought leaders and practitioners together to accelerate progress towards an equitable and sustainable water future.Do you have practical knowledge and experience related to one of this year’s River Rally themes? Could your knowledge help someone working on similar challenges in another setting, geography, or organization? If so, we need you.

In 2020, we went virtual! The three-week program ran from May 18 – June 5 and included over 100 hours of content across 6 themes. We are grateful to the 500+ registrants, presenters, sponsors, and other partners for their flexibility, patience, and willingness to jump into this with us. To learn more about the virtual experience, check out the June issue of River Voices.

COVID-19 Update: As we open our calls for workshop proposals and River Hero nominations, it is unclear whether River Rally 2021 will be in-person or virtual. While we sincerely hope that we can all be together in San Antonio in May, it is possible that River Rally 2021 will be another virtual experience. We ask those who plan to submit a workshop proposal to consider how their workshop might be adapted to fit a virtual format.

Curious about Rally? In Cleveland for River Rally 2019, approximately half of registrants were attending for the first time. We provide a welcoming space for newcomers to get to know our network and eagerly greet those who have attended before as old friends.

“The conference was terrific. Substantive, engaging, welcoming, broad-thinking, bold in its address of underlying humanness… As a newcomer, this was a great way of getting to know, and become a part of, our community.

-David Brotman, Friends of the N. Fork Shenandoah River
