The news is full of stories about how supply chains are a mess right now. Here at MMUA, we are hearing of lengthy delays to acquire critical equipment and supplies necessary for utility operations.

Bring your afternoon coffee or tea and join us (virtually) on May 24, 2022, from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm to hear from industry experts as we share information in an open forum on this hot topic. There will also be plenty of time for participants to share ideas and brainstorm ways we can get through these challenging times together.
