Asset Management


Asset Management (AM) is the "coordinated activity of an organisation to realise value from assets". Assets include anything that has potential or actual value to an organisation, physical or otherwise, and asset management is the art and science of making the right decisions to optimise the delivery of value. 

The Asset Management Specialist Network was set up to support those active in the field of asset management by facilitating the exchange of knowledge, encouraging discussion of evolving best practice and building a sense of community to strengthen the profession and practice of asset management. This will help to better achieve the balancing of costs, opportunities and risks against the desired performance of assets, to achieve organisational objectives in Australia.

The objectives of the Asset Management Specialist Network are: 

  • Enhance AM knowledge/understanding
  • Improve AM capability of members
  • Facilitate networking
  • Influence AM related policy matters

And we do this through:

  • Australian Water Association publications and events
  • Website and online forum
  • Collaboration

The Asset Management Network Committee is continuously thinking of what activities it can plan to best deliver benefit to the Australian Water Association members. In order to plan activities that are of benefit to members all over the country, we need to hear from you. What would you like to see the network do over the next few years? What needs do you have which we may help meet? What challenges are you facing in your role that need a solution?

Whether it be training, networking, developing policies, contributing to international standards or anything else that will help you in your Asset Management role, please get in touch.

Australian Water Association members who are interested in asset management are also encouraged to join the specialist network. We provide meaningful networking and knowledge sharing opportunities for all members and run from a Committee with strong national representation. 

We are driven by the interests of our members, and you are most welcome to contact us with any ideas and enquiries for this network.
