Congreso de las Acequias

The Congreso de las Acequias is a dynamic and vibrant gathering that celebrates the acequias as part of our way of life and our livelihood. Our theme this year is “Honoring the Movimiento de las Acequias: 30 years of Advocacy and Acequia Legacy! (1989-2019).” We celebrate the people who keep our acequias flowing and the deep connection to land, family, and community. The NMAA convenes the Congreso, which is our statewide governing body, to learn about current issues affecting acequias, to pass resolutions that guide our policy positions and strategic direction, and to elect leadership. Each year, the Congreso contributes to our ongoing history with honoring community leaders and collectively identifying organizational priorities for the coming year. NMAA works to continue building the acequia movement by protecting our land and water resources for future generations of acequia farmers and ranchers.
