The Utility Technology Association
UTA (Utility Technology Association) 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.
UTA is a technology support group for utility personnel looking for new and innovative ideas to ensure our strength and growth in the utility business world. Through this group they 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 settings.
The Vicky Wilson Excellence Award began in 2009. This prestigious honor is awarded to one individual in the UTA organization each year who has went above and beyond the call of duty to excel this organization, and technology within the utility industry, forward.
The inscription on the award reads:
