Event description

Description

Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA), Alberta Urban Municipal Association (AUMA), and Infrastructure and Asset Management Alberta (IAMA) are excited to bring you half-day asset management capacity-building workshops for elected officials and senior administrators! Through support of the Government of Canada and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) workshops will be offered free of charge.

This workshop is designed to be an introduction to asset management for elected officials and CAOs only.

Although the workshop is open to all municipalities in Alberta, because it is an introduction, it will be most helpful for smaller municipalities or those with limited progress on implementing asset management.

Topic: Boring until it is broken: Engaging the public in infrastructure and asset management

What will you get out of the workshop?

During this half-day workshop, you will be introduced to asset management through two modules with the following goals:

Module 1— Articulate Why It Is Important to Engage the Public in Asset Management

  • Learning Goal: Articulate Why It Is Important to Engage the Public in Asset Management
  • Learning Goal: Identify Council’s Role in Communication and Engagement

Module 2— Identify Who Should Be Engaged and What the Messages Should Be

  • Learning Goal: Identify the Audience and Key Messages and Questions for Engagement

Module 3—Identify How to Engage

  • Learning Goal: Identify Good Practices for Engaging with Constituents
  • Learning Goal: Monitor for Success

The workshop is being offered at no cost to remove one of the financial barriers we know can prohibit participation in educational workshop opportunities for elected officials and municipal staff.

Registration and a contiental breakfast will begin at 7:30AM in the Travel Lodge Strathmore, workshop to begin at 8:30AM and will run until 12:30PM. Registration is restricted to elected officials and CAOs only, please indicate in the registration form the municipality and position title of each participant.
