Event Registration - FREE - Best Practices in Asset Management

Wednesday, April 23, 2014
12:00 PM - 1:15 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Description: The municipal environment is a forever changing and demanding environment when it comes to legislation and other responsibilities. As municipalities in Ontario maintain and enhance their asset management plans, consideration is needed with respect to how the plan fits into the day-to-day operations of the municipality and how it can assist in other key processes and requirements. While an asset management plan can assist in applying for provincial grant applications, its primary benefit should be in how it strengthens decision making and leads to more proactive forecasting abilities.

This webinar will assist municipalities with making optimal use of their asset management plans through best practices, increasing the accuracy of the plan as well as integration with other key municipal documents and processes such as the annual budget, long-term forecast, water/wastewater rate study, and development charge study.
What You will Learn:
  • Benefits to having an asset management plan;
  • Best practices in asset management planning;
  • Considerations with respect to maintaining your asset management plan;
  • Potential plan enhancements; and
  • Integrating your plan with other municipal processes and documents.

Who Should Attend:
This workshop is designed for CAOs, Treasurers, Finance Officers, and other Department Representatives that are interested in learning about asset management practices or are responsible for asset management planning.
