Leadership Center Training — Benefiting the Nation's Water & Wastewater Utilities
Leadership is a topic of great interest for public water and wastewater managers. To ensure a utility's future success it is essential to prepare and develop leaders and management executives to meet current and future demands. To meet this need, AMSA, the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, the American Water Works Association and the Water Environment Federation have created the Water & Wastewater Leadership Center, housed at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill's state-of-the-art Kenan-Flager executive education facilities.

The Leadership Center's intensive, professional 12-day residential training program, ongoing Internet coaching and peer networking examines a wide-variety of leadership and management topics needed for today’s, and tomorrow’s, utility leaders. The curriculum has been designed for public water and wastewater utility CEOs, General Managers, Senior Managers and upper-level management.

Center Facilities and Curriculum Receive Rave Reviews
Since the first Leadership Center session was held in 2001, the Center’s timely curriculum, excellent faculty and top-notch facilities have been applauded by utility leaders. The excellent value, in time and money, was repeatedly highlighted in comments from Center participants. Ed Kerwin, Executive Director for the Orange Water and Sewer Authority (N.C.), said it best — "The Water and Wastewater Leadership Center provided me with the most useful learning experience of my 25-year career in the wastewater industry."
