Mark your calendars for the best executive-level education and peer-to-peer exchange networking in the water sector, and plan to join water utility leaders from across the country when they gather in beautiful Coral Gables, Florida, October 20-23, for AMWA’s 2023 Executive Management Conference.  

This one-of-a-kind gathering of water executives features a program that addresses unique interests, outlooks, and scopes of management responsibility. The agenda will include top-of-mind issues such as:  

  • Tackling workforce challenges

  • Collaborating across sectors for community-based solutions 

  • Innovative ways to replace lead service lines

  • Sharing lessons learned from real-world pressure points 

In addition to a robust agenda and networking opportunities, the program will include the annual awards ceremony to recognize the 2024 winners of AMWA’s Gold, Platinum, Sustainability, and Environmental Justice Awards.  

AMWA will send a survey to members and subscribers for you to share your ideas or feedback on panel discussions, topic ideas, and presentations in the first quarter of 2024.  

So, save these dates and look for more program information on AMWA’s 2024 Executive Management Conference, which will take place at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Coral Gables.  

Shaun Pietig, P.E., General Manager at WaterOne, had the following to say about the 2023 EMC:

"The AMWA Executive Management Conference was a unique experience and unlike any other conference I’ve attended, and I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it.  With only 2 attendees per vendor/consultant allowed and no exhibit hall, the sales pitch was kept to a minimum.  The focus was on the bigger picture and critical issues water utilities are facing.  Attendees were all General Managers (GMs)/CEOs which allowed me to get to know other colleagues across the country and hear their challenges, gain insight from their experiences, and increase my network with my peers.  This conference was very motivating and uplifting.  As a new GM it was very helpful to talk to other GMs to learn how they dealt with different situations and collaborate on issues.  It’s always good to seek others’ advice, especially if they’ve already been through the same situation.  Plus, it was helpful and encouraging to hear them facing some of the same opportunities and challenges as WaterOne.  Some of the topics we discussed were leadership, culture, recruitment, developing & retaining workforce, infrastructure replacement, artificial intelligence & machine learning, lead service lines, PFAS, climate change, and affordability. This conference allowed me to build that base of peers (other GMs) to call upon in the future and I look forward to attending next year."
