3) Value of Membership

Advocacy and Policy Leadership

Our members consistently deliver dramatic benefits from their asset leadership and asset management activities and are guiding others in government and private industry to do the same. Association with ALN provides third party endorsement for focused discussion on a systems approach to asset leadership and asset management.

Being involved in a leadership association creates opportunities for members to be involved in discussions and other activities that can affect asset management policies and strategy. ALN executives, Senior Fellows, and members offer opportunities to engage with key executives from the public and private sectors.

The consistent integrity displayed by our members and supporters in delivering meaningful information to governments and institutions presents opportunities for high-level access to key influencers.

Members of Congress have provided meeting space in prestigious facilities on Capitol Hill including in Senate Committee Hearing Rooms and U.S. Capitol meeting rooms. They have arranged win-win meetings with key staff for our members to deliver a rare message of solutions and benefits rather than problems and requests for money.

Connecting our members with their federal representatives on Capitol Hill with a positive message is highly rewarding for all involved, creating the win-win-win solutions the ALN advocates.

Our members and supporters collaborated to write position papers for the 2016 Presidential Transition Team. They have written a draft Asset Management Executive Order and a National Asset Leadership Strategy which have been circulated broadly on Capitol Hill.

The National Asset Leadership Strategy (NALS) begins with an asset taxonomy that can be used to improve and broaden discussions of all assets. It then describes the foundational elements to be incorporated into the strategy. It was prepared with observation from committee staffers in the U.S. House of Representatives. House staffers have also requested ALN input on their actions for upcoming sessions of Congress.
