ALN Newsletter 12 July 2022

Things are shaping up for “A Culture Asset Leadership – Power from Associations”- an in-person event Friday 16 September from 8 – 4 pm at the National Academy of Sciences’ historic building, 2100 Constitution Avenue, NW. We have invited the New York Academy of Sciences to present its “Infrastructure Architect Framework” to help owners of civil infrastructure systems design and manage complex assets to improve sustainability and resiliency. Other distinguished speakers from noted organizations have been invited and will be announced when final commitments are made. Registration is at this link. If you want to sponsor activities or volunteer to assist, please email with your contact information.

A virtual CAMPUS for Asset Management (AM) practitioners to provide visibility into the adoption of AM in US organizations.

People, Sources, and Ideas are all one item this week. Dr. John Wyatt, Esq. has established an asset management undergraduate program at California Polytechnic University, Pomona. He has asked the Asset Leadership Network to co-teach one 2-hour summer school class on ISO 55K and the importance of asset leadership to guide proper asset management. Dr. Wyatt also asked for pre-class links to ISO 55K information for his students to gain background understanding before the class. If this is what students are learning, it might be a good idea for professionals to have a solid grasp on these sources. Share this with the growing number of leaders who are starting to explore asset management.
