Building on its Professional Development Institute webinars, the Association of Equipment Management Professionals is launching a new educational webinar series that 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 a.m. CST, and again on the fourth Thursday at noon CST.

“The asset management profession is always changing, from advances in telematics to properly utilizing social media,” said Stan Orr, president and CSO of AEMP. “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.

“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
