The Utility Management Conference 2011:
Even Better Than the Usual Drill

As WEF co-chair for the program committee and long-time supporter of Effective Utility Management Collaborative Effort, I’m seriously looking forward to The Utility Management Conference™ 2011 in Denver next week. It’s the place to be for water and wastewater utility managers who want to improve the way they operate, and as usual, the program includes a series of high-quality presentations and the latest information about the attributes of effective utility management and how to be a successful manager. Sessions cover everything from infrastructure stability, water resource adequacy, and operational optimization to financial viability, employee development, and the just- added session on EPA’s new fluoride rule. (Shameless plug: At the session on Profiles in Leadership, three of the nation’s top managers will share how they effected important change at their utilities; I’ll be moderating.)

Anyway, it’s a program created jointly by WEF and AWWA, so you know it will be solid and informative. And we’ve added some new stuff to make sure it starts and ends on an informative and memorable note. Opening session speaker is The Culture of Flushing author and University of Ottawa law professor Jamie Benidickson, who’ll discuss the legal and social history of sewage. Closing session speaker Dave Singleton, President of Layne Christensen’s water resource division, will give a first hand account of how drillers from his company broke through to reach those 33 Chilean miners last year. Years from now we’d like folks to remember a truly outstanding utility management conference, and with speakers like these, they hopefully will. See you in Denver!
