The Utility Technology Association (UTA) was originally formed back
in 1981 as UDPO (Utility Data Processing Organization). In 2002, the name was changed
to better reflect this organization and the direction it was headed in the ever-changing
world of Information Technology. We meet annually during the Fall.
UTA is a technology support group looking for new and innovative ideas to ensure strength
and growth in the utility business world. Through this group we look to accomplish the following:
Provide an intellectual venue for persons associated with Information Technology to explore
both issues and solutions to topics of relevance for utilities in the South Eastern US.
Provide a physical location for this venue that will facilitate the attendees as well as special
guests and their instructional aids.
Provide an environment whereby members can network with each other in both professional and social
We discuss such topics as network administration & security, disaster recovery, website design and development,
information compliance, network and internet security, telecommunications, customer information systems, meter
reading technologies, wireless communication, GIS solutions, mobile data, TVA regulations and changes, outsourcing,
and any new technology on the horizon.
We welcome anyone to this informative group who has technology related knowledge or services to offer, or to those
who can benefit from this kind of information.
