Members of the PEMAC Asset Management Association of Canada met in Toronto, Ontario, recently for their bi-annual face-to-face meeting.
The meeting focused on advancing the goals for 2020/2024 Strategic Plan, reviewing a list of brainstormed initiatives provided by our staff and volunteer teams, prioritizing them, and how to marshal staff, volunteer and financial resources. PEMAC directors made recommendations and decisions that will further its strategic plan.
The impacts of COVID-19 on PEMAC events and partner teaching institutions who offer face to face PEMAC courses, were discussed. The executive team is working on a response plan, which is set to be published soon.
The meeting took place on International Women’s Day, and Jean-Pierre Pascoli, Vice President, acknowledged the role women play in PEMAC.
“In the typically male-dominated field of maintenance, reliability and asset management, the PEMAC board is extremely proud that women play such critically important roles in our organization including those of our president, executive director, and manager of education and professional development,” said Pascoli. “Susan Lubell, Cindy Snedden and Nicolle Guillen as well as the many other women in our team have helped make PEMAC the strong Canadian leader in asset management we have become.”
