Associate Partners

CMUA recognizes and thanks our many Associate Partners for their ongoing support of our mission to partner with community-owned utilities to provide safe, reliable, affordable, and sustainable services through advocacy, education, and relationships.  Our Associate Partners work with us to ensure the delivery of critical educational programs and information-sharing opportunities.  Their support helps our members to shape the future of community-owned utilities now and into the future.
