Innovation and disruption will highlight the 2023 WQA Mid-Year Leadership Conference’s (MYLC’s) keynote address when Subeca CEO Patrick Keaney takes the podium during the noon luncheon September 20, according to a press release from the Water Qualter Association (WQA).

MYLC will be held September 19-21 at the Everline Resort and Spa in Lake Tahoe, California.

Keaney is former Worldwide Head of Amazon AWS Water, focused on using cloud technology to solve water challenges around the world. In May, he joined Subeca, a provider of water metering systems that partners with Amazon Sidewalk’s shared network to leverage IoT technology to provide real-time insights into water usage across entire neighborhoods.

After Keaney’s speech, “Thinking Outside the Meter Box,” WQA Chief Executive Officer Pauli Undesser will join him on stage for a discussion about innovation, the future of water, and their involvement in the American Water Works Association’s Water 2050 think tanks.

It’s just one of sessions designed to introduce MYLC attendees to ideas and strategies they can take back to their own businesses. The conference also features networking events that help participants collaborate with and learn from each other. A golf outing and a benefit dinner experience will raise funds for the Water Quality Research Foundation.

Full registration and hotel information (limited availability), a complete schedule of events, and other conference details are available at the event website, wqa.org/mylc.
