The IAM USA Chapter has been established to provide asset management professionals, and others interested in the field, the forum to enhace and share their knowledge of good practices for managing infrastructure assets. We promote an understanding of the ISO 55000 family of standards and work to simplify collaboration and communication among asset management professionals. We aim to support the growth of the IAM by promoting and demonstrating the value of membership. We promote the exchange of ideas through professional networking and social events at the national as well as the local branch level.

A bit of context...
On October 31, 2013, after the IET Asset Management Conference at Rutgers, twenty-one of the attendees went to dinner to discuss the formation of an asset management community of practice in the US. There was unanimous endorsement of the recommendation to establish a Chapter. Six years later, we have not concluded our initial Annual Conference in partnership with the Canada Chapter and have grown to 12 branches across the United States.
Our mission is still to help asset management professionals with personal growth and to assist with the sharing of knowledge of good practices to help them and their organizations to a successful asset management journey.
We are a Chapter that is run by volunteers to grow our membership and enhance the state of the profession throughout the Country. We welcome your involvement, your input, and your questions as we cannot serve the profession without understanding your needs.
Please feel free to reach out to me, our executive team, and your branch leaders. We need to hear from you in order to act in your interest.
