Asset Management 201 for Municipalities: Balancing Risk and Levels of Service

Asset management is about risk management. It’s also a complex balancing act – balancing customer expectations with affordability.

Are you a municipal worker or member of a municipal council? Join us in this advanced course where we will drill down to explore how to weigh risk alongside levels of service. In this interactive workshop, participants will discover how to assess risks related to climate change (and other factors) and how to use risk to prioritize assets for lifecycle activities. Through a case study, participants will explore how to determine current levels of service for various asset categories and identify how to establish clear priorities for proposing levels of service that are achievable and affordable, now and into the future.

Who should attend:

Up to three participants from each municipality with cross-functional responsibilities such as engineers, technologists, operations, finance, professional planners, administration and council.
