U.S Water Alliance Adds Two Leaders to Its Board
New board members will be featured at the Urban Water Sustainability Leadership Conference
Dan Bena, senior director of Sustainable Development for PepsiCo, and Mary Ann Dickinson, executive director for the Alliance for Water Efficiency have joined the U.S. Water Alliance’s Board of Directors. Their membership increases the scope of an already diverse board dedicated to uniting people and policies for water sustainability. "We're honored global water leaders, like Dan and Mary Ann, are joining the Alliance,” explains President Ben Grumbles. “Water, energy and food are all connected. Bringing together many voices and perspectives helps us advance a 'one water' vision for sustainable policies throughout America."
Both of the new board members will be featured in presentations at the upcoming Urban Water Sustainability Leadership Conference in Cincinnati, Oct. 15 to 17. Their presentations and emphasis on partnerships are reflections of the leadership they will bring to the board. Bena will talk about the critical need for innovative and less traditional partnerships for water sustainability. Dickinson will showcase the Blueprint for Action, a collaborative effort between the Alliance for Water Efficiency and The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy. In its third year, the Leadership Conference has become a focal point for shifting the paradigm to green infrastructure, resource recovery, and innovative partnerships.
