Mississauga, ON – The Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada (PEMAC) is currently soliciting applications from the association’s members to apply for the opportunity to serve as a PEMAC representative or alternate representative to the Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management (GFMAM).

The time commitment would involve two face-to-face meetings per year year in conjunction with member national conferences, a monthly one-hour teleconference, and the active contribution to GFMAM project work where the time commitment varies.

The next face-to-face meetings of the GFMAM will be held Oct. 16-20, 2011, in Greensboro, NC, in conjunction with the Society of Manufacturing and Reliability Professionals (SMRP) Annual Conference. Subsequent meetings will be held in conjunction with conferences in the United Kingdom and Brazil.

To learn more about GFMAM, visit www.gfmam.org. A summary of the group’s current projects and its progress, presented at its May 12-19, 2011, meeting in Australia, are posted in this communique: www.pemac.org/pdf/gfmam-communique.pdf.

PEMAC is looking for a leader in theory and practice of maintenance, reliability and asset management; and the availability to attend meetings, serve on project teams and work with the PEMAC executive to engage and inform PEMAC members on GFMAM activities.

This is a volunteer position that will provide the opportunity to connect, learn and contribute at an international level while strengthening our national association. Travel and meals would be covered at cost where the representative is not able to combine attendance at meetings with other business.

To apply, forward your resume and a note indicating your interest on or before Sept. 10, 2011, to the PEMAC Executive Director, Norm Clegg, at nclegg@pemac.org.
