The 2019 ECG Engineering & Operations Conference was held in the beautiful historic Savannah, GA; Georgia’s oldest city. We strategically structured this years’ conference to give our members more one-on-one time to network and have in-depth conversations with vendors and utility professionals. In addition to the extended networking, we had a variety of presentations given by industry experts that sparked great discussions and led to some good Q&A. Meanwhile vendors geared up to eagerly show demonstrations of their product in the vendor expo. Overall, the conference was a huge success with attendees being able to build strategic alliances and partnerships that will enhance their overall knowledge and skills; resulting in professional development and growth of their utility.

The E&O Conference has also served as a platform for ECG to highlight members who have worked diligently to improve and stabilize their utility infrastructure. This year the “System Improvement” Award was given to the Fort Valley Utility Commission for their outstanding work in improving their system. The award was presented by Brian Jaynes, Director of Engineering to Jason Johnson, Operations Manager – FVUC. Also pictured is Wayne Jones, ECG Engineer.
