CFO Forum | Water Forums

The member-driven organization is focused on financial leadership challenges. The comprehensive agenda includes multiple roundtables with current topics chosen by the members, industry-leading organization presentations, group panel discussions, and utility member real-life case studies.


Membership in the Water & Wastewater CFO Forum is by invitation only, focused on leaders of innovative, large-sized entities. Membership is limited to provide the member with the best opportunity to develop a true network of peers. The cost of membership is $650 per year. Benefits of membership in the Forum include:

  • Complimentary attendance at the annual CFO Forum conference. For two (2) days, Forum members engage in interactive discussion in a small-group setting with presentations exclusively from other members. Because the Forum is invitation-only, members are able to share more openly the “lessons learned” from financial challenges. Please register for the annual CFO Forum below. Your confirmation email will include additional information, including how to make your hotel reservation.

  • The opportunity for a second member of your organization to become a member of the Forum and attend the annual CFO Forum also at a cost of $650. The second attendee may register for the annual CFO Forum below.

  • A strong network of peers to call upon throughout the year. Because the water industry is a non-competitive environment, the successes and experiences of members can be, and are, leveraged by other CFOs. The CFO Forum members produce a steady stream of calls, emails, and other correspondence throughout the year soliciting and receiving input from their colleagues in other utilities.

  • Access to materials, surveys, and other documentation. This may include a simple peer-to-peer request for job descriptions to jump-start an organizational redevelopment or a review of CFO Forum survey data on vendors, salary, etc. Forum members are able to obtain a wealth of information that their utility would otherwise have to engage a consultant or commission a special study to obtain.


The Water and Wastewater CIO Forum conference is exclusive to members only. For returning members, welcome! For interested members, please submit your application of interest, we’d love to hear from you.
Registration for the 2024 Forum conference is now live! Please complete your membership renewal to formalize your registration for the conference.
