May 10, 2021 - May 14, 2021


Please join us for the 15th annual Canadian Network of Asset Manager’s (CNAM) Virtual Conference being held online between May 10-13, 2021.

The past year has been challenging in many regards with the onset of COVID-19 and a world pandemic. Many municipalities across the country, and the world over, are struggling to do more with less in terms of asset management.

Connect with us online as we reflect on the past year and set our sights on refocusing and determining the way forward in lieu of the challenges that face us.

The conference will focus on virtual streams such as: AM 101, Organization and People, Long Term Sustainable Financial Planning, Climate Change—Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies, Operations and Maintenance—Infrastructure Development, and French Language Content

Enhance your asset management knowledge and expand your personal network by participating in presentations, workshops, and networking in a virtual environment. It is a unique opportunity to learn from our peers and to navigate the obstacles that lie on the road ahead of us.

Join us remotely from the comfort of your home or office with a coffee in hand.

Further announcements are coming in the next few weeks, including concurrent session and workshop topics, and the virtual conference platform.

From 2005-2007, Burke was the general manager for the Anaheim Ducks, who, under his leadership, won the 2007 Stanley Cup championship. He was also a pro scout and consultant for the team after serving as the president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
