The Michigan Infrastructure Council (MIC) is welcoming a new cohort of leaders into the Asset Management (AM) Champion Program. This program will establish a network of talented individuals and organizations to help strengthen and “champion” best practice asset management across Michigan’s complex infrastructure environment.

  • Build Awareness: Build AM Champions to foster a culture of asset management best practices across Michigan
  • Develop Knowledge: Develop AM Champions who understand and promote the value of asset management aligned with the five topics in the MIC Asset Management Readiness Scale (AMRS) – gov/MIC – Readiness Assessment Scale Tab
  • Establish Community: Establish a community of AM champions to seed peer relationships and build a network of asset management leaders across the state and across infrastructure

The AM Champion Program is a fast-paced and interactive training curriculum that combines asynchronous education, facilitated discussion, peer interactions, and industry learning into a professional certification from the MIC.

The program will run from April through June 2022 and will require approximately 25 hours to complete

Application deadline is March 31, 2022

  • Asynchronous Modules: Nine lessons featuring asset management content and interactive activities. All material aligns with the 5 topic areas in the MIC
  • Facilitated Discussion and Peer Interaction: Three 90-minute, in-depth thematic discussion sessions with peers and industry leaders
  • Industry Learning: Access to a comprehensive library of webinars and presentations from the Canadian Network of Asset Managers (CNAM) and newly developed case studies from Michigan Infrastructure owners

If you are a local, regional, or state government employee, public-sector asset owner, or leader from an industry organization, please fill in the application form – https://forms.office.com/r/eZkVchEFb2
