People are not assets. But spending time with people can be an asset when information is shared and intellectual property is generated in the form of education and insights. Spending time with people at the National Academy of Sciences, 2101 Constitution Avenue, NW, this Friday 16 September for the ALN’s “A Culture of Value: Sustainable Infrastructure” will be a great asset for you – and for your existing and future colleagues. Register below to learn about a structured approach to infrastructure asset management, real property asset management, personal property asset management – and how they all have to interact in order to improve your organization.

GAO’s Post-Pandemic Planning for Office Space Use
|David Marroni, Acting Director, Physical Infrastructure, U.S. Government Accountability Office, will be presenting on the GAO’s recently published report on Post-Pandemic Planning for Office Space and other issues at the ALN’s “A Culture of Value – Sustainable Infrastructure” this Friday 16 September. Many federal agencies reported plans to reduce space going forward, which would have significant infrastructure issues on critical U.S. economies. The report discusses changes agencies made to office space in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and anticipated changes to be made in the next 3 years.|
Replicate Language in MAP-21?
|The legislative staff for U.S. Congressman Gerry Connolly, Va. 11th District, expressed interest in the use of MAP-21 language requiring an Asset Management Plan in order to receive federal funds to acquire assets. MAP-21 also included funding for education and training about the creation of asset management plans. Congressman Connolly’s office was contacted because he represents the area where the ALN has its headquarters. What if those who are legally able were to reach out to their federal representatives and suggested inclusion of asset management language in all bills? Could we increase value to the nation through a grassroots asset management campaign? Join us at the National Academy of Science to discuss this further. Or contact ALN Executive Director Mike Bordenaro at mbordenato@AssetLeadership.net.|
