UTC Dondanville Award

Established in 1989, the Dondanville Award is named in honor of UTC’s first president, Russell V. Dondanville. This award formally recognizes an individual’s extraordinary service and dedication to UTC over the years through active participation in numerous Association activities.

Throughout the years, UTC has evolved and adapted in many ways. The one thing that has remained constant, is the member-driven initiative of the organization. There are individuals who take part in this initiative and during the course of UTC’s growth, have played a key role in the growth of the organization.

Participating in both regional and national events, attending meetings, and joining conference calls are all of equal priority to these individuals which is evident through their consistent attendance and support for the Association. Dondanville Award nominees are recognized for their unwavering dedication, inspiring perspective, and devotion. This is a person who shows integrity “on and off the court.”

UTC Meehan Award

Established in 1998, the Meehan Award is named in honor of UTC’s first Executive Director, Charles M. (Mike) Meehan. The award was created to recognize individuals for their extraordinary leadership in projects during the past year that greatly furthered the interests and objectives of UTC.

If there is one thing we have learned in the past year, it’s that perseverance and leadership go a long way. The utility industry has not only dealt with the lasting effects of the pandemic, it has powered us through multiple, hard-hitting natural disasters. The type of initiative and tenacity that it took to get through the obstacles of 2020, is what makes a true leader.

Meehan Award nominees exemplify leadership and dedication in the utility industry. These individuals go above and beyond for UTC, its members, and the mission and vision of the Association.

UTC Connie Durcsak Unsung Hero Award

The Connie Durcsak Visionary Award is named after Connie Durcsak, a former UTC President and CEO. The UTC staff created this award in memory of her legacy and presents it to individuals of a member utility who personally exemplified and embodied the visionary spirit of UTC and our industry. The award symbolizes the valiant dedication and service, the people and organizations in the energy, utility, and critical infrastructure industry provide to their communities.

In 2021, our world was severely impacted by a pandemic. However, utilities continued to successfully persevere to provide us with critical electricity, water, and gas. At the recommendation of our current President and CEO, Sheryl Riggs she proposed to rename the award, the Connie Durcsak Unsung Heroes award to amplify the selfless, admirable, necessary, never-ending work that our utility workers do every day in extenuating circumstances. They perform heroic tasks daily and there is often no press, fanfare, or acknowledgment of the lifesaving efforts performed by our utility workers… Unsung Heroes, indeed!

The award is open to all energy, utility, and critical infrastructure industry entities independent of corporate size, type, or geographic scale. All utilities are encouraged to apply for the award.

Building on the legacy of UTC Awards, we have established the IMPACT Awards. The IMPACT Awards will honor the UTC Associate Member Organizations making a great impact on our industry through an innovative and proven solution. Members can choose one of three categories areas: Hardware, Software, or Service. There will be three Impact Awards given.

The evaluation criteria will ensure that all UTC Associate Member organizations, regardless of size, type, or offering can clearly communicate, affirm, and support their nomination. These evaluation criteria were established to be relevant, comprehensive, well-aligned with the ever-evolving definition of “impact,” transparent for nominees AND clearly defined for our voting bodies.
