Purpose of the Workshop
To engage utility managers (and folks who work with them) in a day of interactive learning about what it takes to be an “effectively managed utility.” Using the nationally built and recognized Effective Utility Management (EUM) framework and the expertise of one of the sector’s leading consultants in the area of financial management, governance, and informed decision making, the workshop will introduce sound utility management principles AND teach you how to apply them. You will meet and interact with other managers and learn from their experience, and you will hear first hand from some of the top utility managers in the Denver area on how they are approaching and tackling the leadership and management challenges of the day.

Who Should Attend
Utility managers in all aspects of operations (management, administration, human resources, customer service, operations and maintenance); consultants who work with utilities; and utility governance (boards, commissions, councils).

Cost and What’s Included
Members: $95.00 (RMSAWWA or RMWEA)   Non-Members $110.00
Continental breakfast and a boxed lunch will be served, including vegetarian and gluten free options. There will be scheduled breaks in both the morning and afternoon. Participants will earn a total of 6 hours, either as CEUs (0.6) or PDHs (6.0). For Colorado operators, these CEUs are typically applied toward your certification renewal as Supplemental Units (SUs).
