Emerging Utility Leaders Create Storytelling Resources

Emerging leaders from 13 wastewater utilities graduated this summer from a six-month leadership training program called Core Growth: Building Utility Leaders of the Future. Core Consulting Group and NACWA partnered to pilot this program in 2017 with six utilities from U.S. EPA Region 5.

This year, the class repeated in Region 5 but also took place in Region 10 and on the East Coast (Regions 2 and 3). The three classes were comprised of a diverse group, ranging in areas of expertise, years of service and utility size.
