The 2023 Executive Management Conference (EMC) is set to take place in San Diego, California, from October 22-25. This highly-anticipated event not only offers a valuable opportunity for peer-to-peer networking but also features an impressive lineup of renowned speakers and specialized topics designed specifically for leaders in the water sector.

The panelists include:
