Communities with strong asset management (AM) approaches make the best use of their municipal budget. These municipalities are better able to determine which infrastructure projects deliver the most value for money and reduce risk to residents while improving the reliability and long-term performance of physical assets. Communities that take one step further and integrate climate considerations into their asset management processes often have infrastructure that is more resilient to the impacts of climate change, ensuring reliable delivery of the services residents depend on.

Whether you are an elected official or municipal staff, you could benefit from one of FCM’s partner organizations’ courses, workshops, webinars or online coaching to help you to help improve your asset management knowledge and skills.

Sign up today for one of the training opportunities listed below. There are national and local events tailored to meet your community’s needs.
