Presentations kicked off with a 15 minute presentation by WCWA President Sam Carroll titled Celebrating 25 Years of WCWA. At large board member elections were held by Vice President Vicki Bryan and Sam Carroll, Jason Fillhart, and Terri Gladus were elected by the members. Sam and Jason have served since 2019 whereas this is Ms. Gladus' first term on the board.

The second presentation highlighted the 2022 activities of the Alliance and the Watershed Associations and was given by WCWA Treasurer, Jennifer Dann. For the final presentation, Sam Carroll & strategic plan consultant Kimberlie Gridley talked about the work that went into the strategic plan and highlighted some preliminary proposals from the plan.
