NLC Celebrates PEMAC Award Winners

Posted on Oct 5, 2020

Slave Lake, Alberta (October 5, 2020): Northern Lakes College celebrates the achievements of instructors and students in the Asset Management Professional (AMP) and Maintenance Management Professional (MMP) programs. The winners were announced at PEMAC’s annual MainTrain Conference in September.

The Sergio Guy Memorial Award was presented to Susan Lubell, who teaches in both the AMP and MMP offerings. The award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions to the profession and PEMAC, and acknowledges the outstanding achievements of a professional who exemplifies excellence in promoting and representing PEMAC, the profession, and members.

The recipient of the Asset Management Leadership Award, Cliff Williams, teaches in the AMP offering. The award recognizes contributions to the field of asset management and celebrates an individual who inspires the advancement of asset management in Canada.

Both the AMP and MMP Capstone Awards were awarded to NLC students. Ryan Berg won the MMP Capstone Award and Lorena Mueller was awarded the AMP Capstone Award. The Capstone Awards recognize excellence in the Capstone project which students in both the AMP and MMP programs must complete at the end of their programs.

The Asset Management Achievement Award for teams was awarded to the Cowichan Valley Regional District team, comprised of NLC students Austin Tokarek, Tauseef Waraich, and Keir Gervais. The award celebrates a team that recognizes what asset management success looks like in an organization and has made substantial progress towards that goal.

“I extend my congratulations to the recipients of the 2020 PEMAC awards. NLC is proud to work with PEMAC to provide training which supports municipal, business, and industry partners to increase efficiencies and build organizational capacity through the effective maintenance and management of assets,” comments Kevin Crosby, Dean of Business, Academics, Trades, & Regional Stewardship.

NLC has been offering PEMAC’s MMP program since 2004, and AMP program since 2018, with enrolments from participants across the country and around the world. To watch the 2020 PEMAC Awards Celebration video, go to
