RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Water leaders from across the state who are members of the California Utility Executive Management Association will take part in the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) conference in San Diego on December 4-6.
Members of this premier non-profit organization include general managers, public works directors, executive staff, industry consultants and other water industry leaders. They will participate in ACWA's 2012 fall conference and exhibition, "California Water...The Next Generation," at the Manchester Grand Hyatt.
"This is a wonderful opportunity to get the latest information on topics facing the state's water industry and garner insight on how each of our members are impacted," said John Rossi, president of CUEMA and general manager at Western Municipal Water District in Riverside.
ACWA's members represent districts supplying 90 percent of the water delivered in the state. The conference brings more than 1500 water industry professionals together each year.
"That makes this conference one of the best forums for connecting with other water leaders and finding solutions to the concerns all of us face," Rossi said. "Our organization's strength is its members, and ACWA offers us a great opportunity to gather together and build on our industry relationships."
Information about CUEMA will be available at its booth in space #705 in the exhibition hall and at the Welcome Reception on Tuesday, December 4th from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Founded in 2010, CUEMA is known for providing a supportive, industry-building network that bolsters productivity and strengthens leadership among special districts, municipalities, other government entities and our corporate partners.
"CUEMA's member benefits are numerous," said Rick Gilmore, the group's vice president and general manager of the Byron Bethany Irrigation District in Byron.
"One of the most valuable tools I've found is the sharing of ideas at our leadership summits and information on best practices that is available to members," Gilmore said.
