Utility Management Committee

Welcome to the PNWS-AWWA Utility Management Committee's Web pages!

Our membership is about 80 strong, a mix of utilities, consultants and suppliers personnel.

We have two sub groups working in association with the Utility Management Committee: Women in Leadership and Elected Officials.

Recap of our 2109 event here"Building Resilience in Your Organization"  
Recap of our 2020 event here"What would you do IF ….?"  

Management at any level in a water utility is a significant responsibility requiring a complex set of skills and abilities. 
Whether a member is a seasoned veteran or an enthusiastic new comer, the committee seeks to identify ways in which it can assist any member in improving their management skills and expanding their personal knowledge base.
In the effort to provide a sound foundation for the management of tomorrow's businesses the Utility Management Committee wishes to provide and promote managerial training opportunities, interaction and fellowship with like minded organizations and people.

The Committee is committed to providing opportunities for knowledge and best practices techniques for effective utility management.
If you or anyone in your organization has a particular topic that they would like the committee to consider for training, please contact one of the committee officers.
