CNAM leads an inclusive and multi-disciplinary approach for municipal infrastructure asset management, resulting in reliable public services that support the wellbeing of Canadians and sustainable communities. As a national leader for municipal infrastructure asset management, CNAM is a recognized source of knowledge, promotes innovation and collaboration, and provides a common voice to facilitate action. CNAM’s mandate is “by municipalities, for municipalities” to ensure that the municipal infrastructure asset management agenda is managed in the best interest of Canadian municipalities. CNAM is providing a forum for municipalities to exchange information related to municipal infrastructure asset management from both operational and strategic perspectives. Information exchange among municipalities is critical to optimizing the benefits of asset management when people and financial resources at municipalities are limited. Municipal infrastructure asset management is increasingly important as a means to ensuring healthy and vibrant cities for citizens.
The Canadian Association for University Continuing Education (CAUCE) is a professional association of deans, directors, senior administrative personnel and practitioners whose professional careers are in university continuing education in Canada. The mission of the association is to enlarge the scope and quality of educational opportunities for adults at the university level by enhancing the stature and expertise of those institutions and individuals devoted to providing those opportunities. Although our focus is on university continuing education, our publications, programs and services are of interest to all continuing educators.
The Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management (GFMAM) is an association of professional maintenance and asset management societies formed for the purpose of knowledge creation and sharing and for information exchange among our member societies.
The objectives of the GFMAM are:
Current GFMAM projects include:
Certification – The Certification project seeks to review existing certification schemes managed by professional associations around the world, compare and describe them. A final draft of the initial work was presented to the Forum in October 2011 in Greensboro, NC and will be available to members on the GFMAM website before December 2011.
Landscape - The Landscape project is essentially a visual presentation of the Asset Management, in its broadest terms, which is being developed to support the GFMAM and its member societies to allow alignment of relevant knowledge and practices. This work was presented to the GFMAM members in its current state as well as to the attendees of the SMRP conference. It is well underway for publishing of a draft document by June 2012.
Accord - The Accord project is in early work stages. Its aim is to assist organizations who wish to develop, align and compare Asset Management Qualifications. Its completion is dependent on elements of the landscape project.
Based on PEMAC's attendance at meetings so far we feel that PEMAC has much to contribute and much to bring back to our members through continued involvement in GFMAM projects and through the exchange of information, products and services between associations that is sure to follow.
