training opportunities & Resources

ATTENTION: All Elected Officials, Decision-Makers, Clerks and Operators

You are invited to participate in a workshop about the sustainable management of rural and small utilities, given on two different dates and different towns.  

At the workshop, you will conduct a guided self-assessment of your system and identify areas for improvement that are critical to success at your utility. This self-assessment will help you prioritize actions when resources are limited. You will also learn from other utilities that have faced similar challenges.

This 8-hour interactive workshop will focus on ten key management areas of effectively managed utilities, which make up a framework for a complete and well-rounded management approach. By making operational improvements in any of these areas, your utility will be able to deliver increasingly efficient, higher quality services to your community.
