Cleveland Water Alliance is a supporting organization of the 2023 Water Finance Conference, an annual educational seminar exclusively for water finance professionals returning to Cleveland, Ohio, Aug. 8-9.
The Water Finance Conference convenes executive-level utility professionals, including directors, CEOs, CFOs and city finance managers with consultants, financial advisors, legal professionals and service providers involved in financing municipal water, wastewater and stormwater systems. Since 2015 the event has been hosted annually by the journal Water Finance & Management, published by Benjamin Media, and in partnership with NACWA.
Attendees in 2023 will be treated to a glimpse of Cleveland’s water infrastructure before the start of the conference the morning of Aug. 8. Join us for a tour of Cleveland Water’s Garrett A. Morgan Water Treatment Plant and visit the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District’s Superior Avenue Pump Station.
Attendees also get lunch both days and an evening reception on Aug. 8.
Speakers generally include a mix of drinking water/clean water utility finance officers, general managers, municipal advisors, EPA officials and service providers. Presenters and panelists have also included city and county finance managers, current and former mayors and city council members, and other consultants and service providers who have a vested interest in the funding of water infrastructure in the United States.
