An important strategy for progress is first to realize that great institutions are seldom built by giant leaps, but rather by small steps taken consistently in the same direction, and that vision of what ought to be is a requirement of progress and leadership. Reality often requires a second and even a third opinion, and that diversity in people and ideas is a cornerstone of organizational strength.

And finally, a critical correlative benefit of the consensus of "common enlightenment and understanding," is the creation of a strong sense of unity and community. The Kansas Water Congress can provide the vehicle and forum for unity of purpose and objectives in supporting the formation and execution of a stable water policy for a unified Kansas.
