ALN Newsletter 2 August 2022

Special Event Issue

A Culture of Value – Power from Associations will be held on Friday 16 September at the National Academy of Sciences’ historic building, 2101 Constitution Avenue, NW. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will have the highest positive impact when the efforts of professional associations, trade associations, and their members promote asset management best practices so infrastructure investments will provide the greatest return on taxpayer dollars.

A day of in-person programs will highlight what has been successful and how internal and external collaboration will help organizations gain greater value from their assets.

An Association Dinner is being planned on Thursday 15 September.

A block of rooms is available on Thursday 15 September at Hotel Hive, 4 blocks from the National Academy of Sciences. Reservations must be made by August 15 by calling 202-849-8499 and mentioning Asset Leadership Network or by using this link, which has the promo code embedded in it.
