CNAM is the definitive hub through which municipal industry professionals exchange information on the latest developments in municipal infrastructure asset management in Canada. Information sharing is critical to optimizing the benefits of asset management when people and financial resources at municipalities are limited. The benefits of membership are significant and will continue to grow along with the association.
Professional Development and Networking
The annual CNAM Workshop provides the opportunity to meet and learn from prominent industry members in person. International, national and local speakers provide valuable perspectives and best practices in the municipal infrastructure asset management industry. Social events held as part of the CNAM Workshop are designed to encourage networking and idea sharing. Sponsors and exhibitors provide delegates access to and interaction with leading suppliers to the industry.
CNAM Workshop Discounts
All members will benefit from discounted registration fees at the annual CNAM Workshop. Initiated in 2007, the CNAM Workshop is quickly becoming recognized as the leading knowledge sharing and networking event for municipal infrastructure asset managers. Plan to be in Montreal for CNAM 2012: Building Momentum from May 6-9, 2012.
CNAM recently launched a new website that will grow to be the definitive hub through which industry professionals can both gain and distribute information on the latest developments in municipal infrastructure asset management. Members-only online tools in development include: discussion forums, asset management case studies, resource links, career and RFP postings, calendar of events and more.
As a new association, CNAM is actively seeking participation from members to build the organization. Members who are interested in developing their leadership skills are encouraged to get actively involved by running for office on the CNAM board or participating on CNAM committees.
Building an Association “By Municipalities, For Municipalities”
Since CNAM is being built as an association from the ground up, we are exploring methods by which members can
- Learn from colleagues across Canada
- Enhance technical & strategic asset management skills
- Broaden knowledge base and deepen expertise
- Develop leadership skills
- Network with peers across Canada
- Be recognized for innovation and excellence.
