Since 1893, the NSIA has been a thriving, active organization that plays a major role in irrigation matters for the State of Nebraska. First and foremost, the NSIA supports educational conferences, workshops and meetings for members. In addition, the Association works with groups whose interests support irrigation activities in Nebraska. Underlying these activities is an agenda that seeks to further explore the need for effective irrigation project management.
A cornerstone of the Association’s activities focuses on broadening the collective knowledge about water management and related natural resources.
To that end, the NSIA became the force behind the development of the Nebraska Water Leaders Academy in 2009. A year-long program, the Academy provides training in the technical aspects of water plus a leadership track using proven concepts of leadership principals.
