Building on its highly successful PDI (Professional Development Institute) webinars, AEMP is launching a new educational Webinar Series. The series kicks off July 12 and will continue through June 2013. A new topic will be highlighted each month, covering the latest challenges, issues and trends faced by asset management professionals. Each hour-long seminar will be led by a knowledgeable industry expert and feature a live Q&A portion at the close of the session.

Like other AEMP-led educational offerings, the webinars are designed to bring up-to-date information in a convenient format. Each featured topic will be offered two times, first on the second Thursday at 11:00 a.m. CST, and again on thefourth Thursday at noon CST.

“The asset management profession is always changing, from advances in telematics to properly utilizing social media,” Stan Orr, CAE, president and CSO of AEMP, said. “AEMP’s mission is to keep members and other industry professionals informed of key issues concerning them right now, and the new webinar series will enable us to deliver on this promise.”

Webinars also represent the continued effort of AEMP to capitalize on technology in order to offer members more opportunity for continued education. Orr further explained, “The launch of AEMP University last year was a great stride in our mission to deliver education anytime, anywhere. We understand busy schedules and hectic workdays that come with the asset management profession, so it’s crucial that we can deliver timely education in the most convenient, flexible and accommodating ways.”

The webinars are open to anyone looking to enhance and expand knowledge of crucial asset management issues. Each session is limited to the first 22 registrants. Price per seminar is $59 for members with a discount offered on select series-based webinars. Additional information and registration is available at, or those interested may contact Jim Phillps, vice-president of educational services at 970-384-0510 ext. 202 or [email protected].

Formed in 1980, the Association of Equipment Management Professionals represents fleet professionals working in construction, government, utilities, energy, mining and more. AEMP maintains relationships among manufacturers, users, governmental agencies, educational institutions and others involved in the design and management of heavy equipment.

AEMP created the term “Equipment Triangle”. It is the cornerstone of the association’s philosophy that a balanced relationship must exist between the End User, Distributor, and OEM/Supplier in the life cycle of a piece of heavy equipment or product. AEMP advances this philosophy through its education and certification programs. For more information, visit, connect on Facebook and see videos on YouTube.
