CMUA's Audience: The decision-makers that purchase billions of dollars of products and services annually.







 
 

Working with CMUA is a True Partnership

Here's What We'll Do Together


Generate leads. You want to bring in more business, but it can be difficult to go it alone and get a meeting with electric utilities and water agencies. We will help you reach the right people and put you in front of the right audience.

Make connections. CMUA is the only organization in California that brings together electric utilities and water agencies in one place. We have the entire industry covered from all angles, so you don't need to search for contacts far and wide; we bring 55 municipal water agencies and 46 publicly owned electric utilities directly to you.

Showcase your brand. As a CMUA sponsor, you'll have the spotlight at several of CMUA's in-person and virtual events, through an array of presentations, webinars, members-only emails, and much more. Decision-makers - including hundreds of executives and senior-level managers - will see your message regularly throughout the year.

Gain valuable insights. California's water and power business is changing rapidly, and CMUA's staff has the knowledge and expertise to put you ahead of the curve. We can help you navigate the complexities of the utility industry and point you in the right direction as you pursue business.

Stand out year-round. More companies are vying for a piece of the multi-billion dollar municipal water and energy market, which means the arena can be crowded as your potential clients have more vendors to choose from. As a year-round CMUA Associate Sponsor, you'll be seen as an expert, and you will always be top of mind among utility leaders and purchasing managers.
