Annual Report mailing this week

Our 2016 Annual Report, entitled Stewards of Our Valley, has been printed and is being mailed to all industry members this week.

The report reviews the events of the past year and looks ahead to future challenges for our industry.

It chronicles our work in critical areas including preserving water rights, regulation, conservation, state and federal issues and ensuring that the public understands the value of rice to our economy and the Pacific Flyway.
