PEMAC attends GFMAM Bi-Annual Meeting and AMPEAK Conference


The Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management (GFMAM) recently held its meetings in Sydney, NSW, Australia from March 31 to April 2. The meetings brought together 16 people representing 11 different maintenance and asset management associations from around the world. PEMAC was represented by its Board of Director President  J.P. Pascoli who attended in-person, while Director, Nigel D'Souza joined online.

One of the highlights of the first day was a behind-the-scenes tour and climb of the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. Progress was also made on several projects, including the revision to the 3rd edition of Project 24: Asset Management Landscape, an ongoing project with contributions from over 200 hundred experts all around the globe.

The GFMAM members also met with the local Asset Management Council of Australia (AMC) board. While the official GFMAM communique from the meetings is pending, it was announced that the next face-to-face meetings will be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in conjunction with PEMAC's MainTrain conference this September.
