NACWA Board Members to Speak at American Water Summit
(October 2, 2018) - NACWA is again partnering on the American Water Summit 2018 event, which convenes on October 24-26 in Philadelphia, PA. The Summit will feature presentations from several NACWA Board members and other utility and affiliate members, including: Andy Kricun, Executive Director, Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority; David Gadis, General Manager and CEO, DC Water; Kishia Powell, Commissioner, City of Atlanta's Department of Watershed Management; Kevin Shafer, Executive Director, Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District; Harlan Kelly, General Manager, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission; and Karen Pallansch, CEO, Alexandria Renew Enterprises.
This year is proving to be a landmark year for water utilities in North America, as the face of the American water sector is changing rapidly with utility leaders being asked to do more with less. The American Water Summit 2018 creates a valuable venue to discuss how new business models and technological solutions will change the way utilities work.
Across three session strands — "Finance & Strategy,” the “CTO Forum,” and “Water Leaders” — the comprehensive agenda covers topics on more resilient and efficient infrastructure, mitigating the challenges of implementing new financial approaches, and how developing technologies will impact the way utilities work.
