DBS&A is currently working with Dave Ceppos, Managing Senior Mediator – Sacramento State, and the Consensus and Collaboration Program (CCP) team on multiple Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GPSs).  Dave is providing down-to-earth, real-world advice to the Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) we are collaborating on under the leadership of Tony Morgan, PG, CHG. We encourage you to participate in this Groundwater Resources Association (GRA) of California webcast event, “The Urge to Merge – How to Engage in a Socially Distanced World,” taking place on Wednesday, April 8, 2020. Learn more about the event.

Dave will talk about “the new normal of marrying social distancing and remote meetings, with commitments to engage clients, agencies, Tribes, stakeholders, etc.” with “time-critical advice on how to ease diverse groups of people into new and potentially challenging virtual meeting formats, how to deal with fear and anxiety associated with these changes, how to set mutual expectations and calm people down, and facilitation tips and tools you can use to run effective, engaging and necessary remote gatherings.”
