Joy Ditto

President & Chief Executive Officer
Utilities Technology Council

Joy Ditto is the President and CEO of the Utilities Technology Council (UTC), the Washington-based association representing vital energy and water utilities on their mission-critical technologies by driving innovation, fostering collaboration and influencing public policy.  UTC has units serving Canada, Europe, Latin America, and Africa. As a “Marine Corps brat,” Joy learned early that relationships are key to success, as are a willingness to work hard and an ability to see both the “forest and the trees.”  Prior to joining UTC in 2016, Joy spent 15 years at the American Public Power Association (APPA), the national trade association representing not-for-profit, publicly owned electric utilities. She served APPA in several capacities, becoming the association’s Senior Vice President for Legislative and Political Affairs.  At APPA, she led the development of the association’s first strategic plan that was adopted by the group’s Board of Directors.
