Deadline for entry: March 1, 2018

We are currently accepting nominations for the 2018 UTC Apex Award. The UTC APEX Award recognizes utilities that have completed compelling telecommunication projects; whether in emergencies or in steady-state, utility communications technology saves lives, protects property, and provide opportunities for communities to enhance economic prosperity. 

We encourage all to apply using this short online form. The selected winners are presented at the coveted Awards Reception and Dinner on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 in Palm Springs, CA.

The UTC APEX Award is bestowed upon one utility company that provides electric, gas or water services. The nominee must have implemented innovative projects, taken actions, or initiated procedures that leverage communications technologies or information systems resulting in demonstrated benefits and positive impact on the communities they serve.

Nominations may be submitted on recommendations of peers, partners and witnesses to the work of the utility. However, an authorized representative of the utility must accept the nomination prior to being reviewed by the selection committee. A utility may be nominated more than once for different projects. For example, Utility A may be nominated for an innovative distribution automation project. Utility A may also be nominated for the solution it used to promote communications interoperability during a mutual aid situation.

Join us on the night of May 9, 2018 for a Reception and Dinner as we honor individuals for Chairman’s Awards, the Dondanville Award, the Meehan Award, as well as the coveted UTC APEX Award. It will be a great night to celebrate all our UTC members!
