ORFA 2021 Webinar Series

Why Facility Management is Asset Management - The Real Time Application of RFAM

Thursday, June 24, 2021 at 10:00 am, Online

Building on the momentum and member interest of regulated responsibilities associated with the development and maintenance of an operational asset management plan, the ORFA is pleased to offer an update on how Recreation Facility Asset Management (RFAM) software is not only shaping Ontario’s recreation infrastructure data collection trends, but also providing a path for others across North America and around the world.

The webinar will review how ORFA continues to develop and build on the original concept of RFAM. It will highlight how insurance carriers are adopting the benefits of asset management to reduce risk. It will also showcase how members are embracing the technology and present examples of how suppliers are shifting their services to better align with the advancements and benefits of comprehensive asset management.

The webinar is offered as a benefit of ORFA membership and post delivery will reside in the ORFA Resource Centre as a media resource available to assist in educating community leaders and recreation facility professionals as required.
