USA Chapter


The IAM USA Chapter has been established to provide asset management professionals, and others interested in the field, the forum to enhance 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.
