A Team Approach to Board Training

There is probably no other environmental area where the adage “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” has as much meaning as it does with assets such as drinking water and wastewater infrastructure. It is our goal as Technical Assistance Providers to aid communities to better understand technical, managerial, and financial necessities of their utility’s infrastructure. In doing so, we hope the community itself will self-engage and be more proactive in addressing the system’s shortcomings and thus be a sustainable utility into the future.

MAP will be offering a free course:  A Team Approach to Board Training – A Sustainable Utility Management Training Course, on July 11th, 2012 at the Sawmill Hotel and Convention Center in Grand Rapids, MN. Training topics include board responsibilities, legal meetings, finance and reporting, owner’s manual, rate adjustments, hiring an engineer, and emergency response plans/vulnerability assessments. Completion of this workshop leaves a public water system with valuable tools about their drinking water and wastewater infrastructure. MAP staff will provide you with the tools and information you need to be the best purveyor of your drinking water and wastewater system.
