UAI Strategic Advisory Board

UAI is proud to support a Strategic Advisory Board (SAB) of utility analytics practitioners and thought leaders. We work with this board to:

  • Keep closer tabs on insights and utility analytics industry developments as they arise
  • Ensure our services, including membership, events, content, training and any future offerings we provide are aligned with industry best practices and evolve at a pace that aligns with the needs of the community
  • Grow industry relationships and our network

We live in dynamic and unprecedented times, and UAI’s mission remains focused on enabling utility transformation through analytics. This board helps us deliver on this mission and we appreciate and value the contributions these experts make to the utility industry.

Be sure to look for SAB insights and contributions to our community through, UAI Connect (member-only website) Community Conversations, and events; meet them at our virtual and in-person events, and get to know them by clicking on their names below.
