Utility Finance and Management for Governing Boards and Senior Executives of Regional Utilities
Regional water providers face a unique set of finance and management challenges ranging from funding new facilities to adapting to the revenue impacts associated with changing customer demographics and water use patterns. This highly interactive workshop was designed to provide regional water leaders (governing board members and management leaders) with practical information and insight on the latest finance and management trends and tools. Topics to be covered include optimizing the division of responsibility between board members and staff, innovative project financing techniques, crafting utility partnerships/agreements, rate setting and the communication of financial information and needs to boards and the public.
Glenn Marzluf, General Manager/CEO of Del-Co Water Company in Ohio, stepped through the history of how civilizations have provided water service through the ages and how the lessons of the past apply to future industry challenges.
