Dr. Sudip Bose headlines another successful MEUW Annual Conference

by Phil McDade
Leaders of organizations can apply some of the same lessons learned on the battlefield to improve their management and inspire others.

That message, from Iraqi war veteran Dr. Sudip Bose, came during his keynote presentation to more than 100 executives and administrators who gathered at the 87th annual Municipal Electric Utilities of Wisconsin conference in Elkhart Lake June 1-3.

The conference highlighted the work that Wisconsin’s 82 municipal utilities do to provide services to customers throughout the state. Conference attendees also heard in-depth reports from Wisconsin Public Service Commission regulators, social networking experts, and the emerging and vibrant market for natural gas.

In addition, MEUW leadership presented the annual awards for safety and performance excellence at the conference, held at the Osthoff Resort.
