Utility Finance and Management for Governing Boards and Senior Executives

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 is 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. The workshop is designed to provide ample opportunities for utilities to share their experience and knowledge with their peers.

Instructors from the Environmental Finance Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will design and lead the workshop.
