The Agri-Business Council of Arizona has a new name which adds water to its identity.

The new council name is the Agri-Business & Water Council of Arizona, said President Bill Plummer during the association’s 2014 annual meeting held May 16 in Tempe, Ariz.

"The new name better reflects the council’s history and purpose to maintain the integrity of Arizona’s water supplies and the industries that rely on these for the benefit of Arizona’s economy," Plummer said.

“It also echoes our goals to alert, educate, and link our members on current issues important to water, agriculture, and agribusiness,” he added.

The Agri-Business & Water Council of Arizona is a non-profit trade association whose members represent agricultural and water entities in Arizona from ‘ditch bank to dinner plate.’
