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 one-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.

What will you get out of the workshop? You’ll understand what asset management is, the benefits of starting or continuing on your asset management journey, and how you can get started and champion asset management in your municipality!

This full-day workshop is offered in five locations around the province. You will be introduced to asset management through two modules with the following goals:

Module 1

  • Define Asset Management
  • Articulate the Benefits of Asset Management
  • Recognize Trade-offs in Decision-Making
  • Describe the Asset Management Process

Module 2

  • Identify the Role of the Elected Officials and Other Stakeholders
  • Use an Asset Management Mindset
  • Articulate the Role of an Elected Official in Providing Leadership on Asset Management
  • Effectively Use Data and Information
  • Understand and Follow the Asset Management Process

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 Vermillion Regional Centre, Hall A, workshop to begin at 8:30AM and will run until 4:30PM. Lunch provided. Registration is restricted to elected officials and CAOs only, please indicate in the registration form the municipality and position title of each participant.

Please bring a writing utensil and all other materials will be provided.
