The professional body for whole life management of physical assets

IAM: The Institute of Asset Management
February 2012

Many of you receive this Newsletter as well as an increasing number of emails from us.  We are very keen to avoid sending you information you do not want - you can even stop this monthly Newsletter (although we would be disappointed!).  Remember that you can log in and update the email categories you wish to receive, for example: events, jobs or contracts. 

We are always interested in your views, so do let us know if there is any way we can improve the service we offer.

For discussions on Asset Management topics, do remember to join our official LinkedIn Group.  This is now growing rapidly and has more than 2,250 members - you do not have to belong to the IAM in order to participate.


Please forward this Newsletter to anyone who might like to be added to the distribution list. All they need to do is add themselves as Affiliates (Free of charge).

The Pretoria ISO Meeting

Although I was unable to attend the ISO meeting in Pretoria, I am glad to report that it was very busy and productive.  The main Requirements document seems now to have great support and there is a clear path forward for the accompanying Guidance.  Unsurprisingly, the Introductory document has been more difficult and that will be the main priority for Prague in June.  For more details and the official Communiqué please click here.

IAM Conference 2012

Our Annual Conference takes place once again at Warwick 18-20 June.  We are  looking forward to welcoming the GFMAM to join us and increase the international flavour of this event. 

We expect this Conference to be very popular so we do advise reserving your place quickly!  Bookings open on 1st March... 

NB There are Early Bird prices during March at a significant discount - ONLY for IAM paying members (ie Fellows/Members/Associates/Students and Corporate Nominees) and IET TPN Registrants to ensure priority access to an event we expect to sellout.  We suggest you take advantage!

Call for Volunteers!

As our volume of activities increases we need more and more members to be active in order to make the IAM successful. 

Council invites you to become more involved, whether by joining one of the Standing Committees or a Knowledge Project or joining the community of moderators and contributors to the website and Knowledge Centre.  We also welcome volunteer translators as we wish to present some of the web pages and other material in multiple languages. 

Click here to read more about this and request the application form if interested.  You really do get out of the IAM what you put in, so please do have a look!

The Anatomy of Asset Management

There has been a tremendous response to this new publication.  Many hundreds have been downloaded and demand remains strong.  If you want a hard copy you need to place your order soon as we plan one print run onlyORDER HERE!

and finally...

I am aware of a number of unanswered emails and other work and projects that need a response or my input, owing to an unexpected hospital stay recently.  I am now starting to catch up but I am very sorry if this has inconvenienced you.  Inevitably this backlog will take a while to clear.

However, the rest of the Office continues to run smoothly and so it would be helpful if you bypass me as much as possible for the moment.  Thank you for your understanding.
