Asset Management BC is proud to present the November 2021 Conference Series: Risks and Rewards; Delivering Services Sustainably.  
The last 18 months have placed our assets under a powerful microscope. The need for sustainable service delivery has never been greater.
AMBC’s November Conference Series will zero in on mitigating risk and augmenting rewards in three distinct asset groups: Human Capital, Natural Capital and Physical Capital.
Through a combination of keynote speakers, plenary discussions, and open information sharing forums, participants will leave informed of the latest trends, challenges, and risk mitigating measures to guide their work in both the private sector and local government work.
The conference series will be held over three Thursday morning dates in November. Each morning will be dedicated to a distinct asset group.  Delegates are encouraged to attend all three sessions, or alternately book the session that interests them the most:
Session One:  Human Capital – Thursday, November 4, 9:30-Noon
Session Two:  Natural Capital – Thursday, November 18, 9:30-Noon
Session Three: Physical Capital – Thursday, November 25, 9:30-Noon

Cost per session: $75 plus GST
Cost to attend the Three-Part Conference Series: $185 plus GST

 

Registration is through the CivicInfo portal: https://www.civicinfo.bc.ca/event/2021/UBCM-AssetManagement

The presentations from the 2019 Asset Management BC Conference are now available online on the Resources page, under 2019 Asset Management BC Conference Presentations.

November 8, 2019  Radisson Vancouver Airport Hotel, Richmond, BC – In conjunction with the annual conference, AMBC will be hosting its first full-day workshop on how to document and assess community levels of service in small communities.  This will begin with a one-hour session on what levels of service is and why it’s important, and transition into a workshop-style how […]

Public Sector Digest (PSD) is seeking municipalities interested in participating in a pilot initiative, rolling out the UKCIP climate change adaptation wizard in Canada. Your municipality will work with PSD and Dr. Peter Walton from Oxford University to introduce the climate change adaptation wizard to your asset management program.

For many asset intensive services, climate change makes it more difficult to deliver desired levels of service. It amplifies risk and increases costs required to manage these risks. The greatest impacts are to transportation systems, buildings, water management systems, and marine infrastructure. These assets represent the majority of local government infrastructure assets.
 

Climate change will also impact natural assets, which play a critical role in service delivery for all communities. Wetlands, creeks, deltas, foreshore areas, forests, groundwater aquifers, and other natural assets are all vulnerable to the effects of climate change. However, these natural assets can also provide opportunities to increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change and carbon storage to mitigate changing climate.
 

The BC Framework Primer on Climate Change and Asset Management has been written for staff of local governments. It introduces an approach for integrating climate change considerations throughout the asset management process. It provides an overview of the following topics:

  • Key concepts
  • Why integrate climate change response with asset management
  • How to integrate climate change response throughout the AM process

 

This primer is a companion document to Asset Management for Sustainable Service Delivery, A BC Framework (the Framework) and builds on concepts from the Framework.
