PROFESSIONAL OPPORTUNITIES 
A key benefit of NHWC is professional networking and development. Online and regional training sessions are in development, along with the numerous opportunities at the NHWC biennial conferences. 
CONFERENCES
The NHWC hosts biennial conferences and workshops to assist local water resource managers and emergency management officials in the collection, evaluation, and dissemination of real-time hydrologic data to protect lives and property.

The NHWC was formed in 1993 by agreement between the ALERT Users Group and the Southwestern Association of ALERT Systems, to be the national voice for these regional users groups. This original agreement was amended in 1999 when the ALERT-Flows East Coast Users Group was brought under the NHWC umbrella. 

The NHWC was officially incorporated as a stand-alone organization in 2005. The organization follows its approved NHWC By-Laws for its operations, which were revised by the membership in 2013.
