Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Water Conservation Coalition (WCC) is a public/private partnership formed by community leaders to help increase water-efficient business practices within the Southern Nevada business community and promote community-wide water conservation. The WCC provides information and encouragement to business peers in an effort to boost participation in water conservation and incentive programs. The WCC carries out its mission by providing the community with sound data, education, committed leadership and initiatives that respect our water resources and quality of life in Southern Nevada.
The WCC’s day-to-day management falls under an annual contract between the Southern Nevada Water Authority and Faiss Foley Warren Public Relations and Government Affairs, (FFW), under the leadership of Susan Black-Manriquez, who services as WCC Executive Director and works directly with SNWA staff and management.
The WCC is not a 501-(c)(3) organization. At the approval of SNWA management, the WCC is allowed to utilize the Springs Preserve Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) for fundraising purposes - with strict oversight and management of donor funds for WCC projects.
The WCC operates with an Executive Committee rather than a Board of Directors. The Executive Committee is currently comprised of 11 members including a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and Immediate Past Chairman. The Executive Committee meets monthly and all members, with the exception of SNWA and FFW staff, are unpaid volunteers.
