"We encourage you to engage in dialogue, ask the tough questions, and establish your role in water. In addition, we hope you leave the YP Summit with a refreshed perspective of our industry and feel well-equipped to lead the charge for change. After all, you are the future leaders of water." -Rocky Craley & Vanessa Borkowski, 2017 YP Summit Planning Co-Chairs
