Happy Holidays and hopeful rest to the highly active ALN community. Leaders are very busy people and it is good that every once in a while society forces at least a little break from the intensity of problems we face. We hope you find joy and happiness in the coming weeks.
We are happy to announce Assetic, Inc. as a new member of the ALN. Founded in Australia, the asset management software company and consultant also has offices in Canada and England. It is now owned by U.S. based Dude Software. We are already working with Assetic on a 2022 Q1 conference for the Chicago-based Government Finance Officers Association, which services local government CFOs. Assetic was co- founded by Ashay Prabhu, who is featured in People below.
Ashay Prahbu, Managing Director helped start Assetic in 2005 to combine software and asset management services. First serving government agencies and moving on to Transport and Facilities, Assetic expanded out of Australia and now works around the world, including in the U.S. As a member of the Government Finance Officers Association, Mr. Prahbu was able to quickly assist with a request to the ALN for an asset management conference. A three-day conference is being planned for March. Leading work by Topeka, Kansas and Greater Geelong, Australia will be featured. A paper, co-publish by GFAO and ALN is planned. Stay tuned from more details.
