What: Water Industry Update From UWM, GMC and Badger Meter
When: May 18, 2009 6:00 PM
Meetup Description: If you've paid any attention to local business pubs or have attended a Spreenkler meetup you know that Milwaukee is building toward becoming the freshwater hub of the world. Having just been designated by the United Nations as a global hub of freshwater science and technology, Milwaukee is poised to reach this goal.
However, this is where you come in. Water industry leaders will need your support at an upcoming public hearing. More on that later. For now, let's focus on getting you up to speed on this water thing directly from the experts.
Let's grab a drink at the Iron Horse Hotel and learn more about the importance of the School of Freshwater Sciences, what the world is doing in water and what our water industry is focused on. Here's the agenda:
6:00pm Steve Glynn, President of Spreenkler
6:05pm Rich Meussen, CEO of Badger Meter
What is the Milwaukee water industry and why does it matter?
6:25pm Julia Taylor, President of the Greater Milwaukee Committee
