We are excited to be running our 1-day Asset Management Awareness Workshop in Torbay NL on March 6th 2018 and we hope you will join us!
The session is appropriate for Elected Officials and Municipal / Organization Staff who will leave the workshops with:
  • a better understanding of what asset management is,
  • why it should be undertaken and the benefits to your community,
  • what it entails and how to begin implementation with some tangible steps. 
The first half of the day will focus on what asset management is, and why the municipality should do it, and the second of the day will focus on what it entails and how to go about doing it.  Elected Officials are welcome to attend the morning portion only if they wish. Everyone will walk away with a better understanding of AM and some tangible actions you can take back to your organizations.
This is relevant for all municipalities, regardless of your size and location, or whether or not you have made any progress with asset management to date.  The face-to-face session will enable participants to connect with peers, network with other municipalities who practice asset management at varying levels, and provide a safe environment conducive to knowledge sharing and collaborating.
The Canadian Network of Asset Managers (CNAM) is the association of public infrastructure asset management in Canada. Our government and private sector members develop policy, tools and technologies which improve the level of service for public infrastructure assets in every province and territory. CNAM shares that knowledge with other members and stakeholders through our online resources, the annual conference and various committees and events.
