AWA Asset Management Specialist Networks

YOUR ASSET MANAGEMENT SPECIALIST NETWORK

The Asset Management Specialist Network was set up to bring together water professionals active in the field of asset management, by facilitating the sharing of knowledge, connecting members to encourage discussion and build a sense of community whilst inspiring others to “practise best practice’’ 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. 

MEET THE COMMITTEE

The committee has a broad range of experience with members from the public and private sectors, with hopes to leverage this depth of experience and bring progressive thinking to the asset management arena.  Feedback and suggestions from network members are welcome at any time.
