Equipment Management LIVE

The first ever AEMP Equipment Management LIVE virtual conference will take place June 22-26! 

As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, AEMP is excited to launch Equipment Management LIVE. This virtual event replaces the 2020 June Leadership Summit which has been rescheduled for June 2021 at the Hyatt Regency in Savannah, GA.

While our preference is to convene the AEMP community face-to-face, the public health of our attendees, partners, speakers, staff and volunteers makes the transition to a virtual summit a safe and responsible action. The AEMP team has exercised creativity and imagination to produce five days of education content and leadership training, from which you can earn five credit hours toward your CEM/ CESP renewal

Additionally, the virtual summit presentations will remain accessible via the AEMP University for 120 days after the live event takes place, allowing you access to the content at your convenience. We are excited for this opportunity to continue building excellence in Equipment Management and providing member value despite the current challenging times.  Thank you for staying engaged in the AEMP community and we look forward to seeing you virtually in June for Equipment Management LIVE!

1:00 – 2:30 PM ET  - Equipment Triangle Industry Foresight and Advocacy

Part 1 - The COVID-19 Economy and What to Expect

Being informed about the issues impacting our country and industry are crucial as a US citizen and an industry professional. Join this session to hear about the state of the economy and what to be prepared for as we continue navigating the coming year in a pandemic.


  • Chris Kuehl Ph.D., Co-Founder and Managing Director of Armada Corporate Intelligence

Part 2 - What is Happening on Capitol Hill?

AEM and AED are powerhouse organizations when it comes to advocating for the constructions industry. Hear from two government relations experts on the status of their individual advocacy efforts, an update on US federal infrastructure policies and COVID-19 relief efforts for businesses.


  • Kate Fox Wood, Director Government Relations Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM)
  • Daniel B. Fisher, Vice President of Government Affairs Associated Equipment Distributors (AED)

Part 3 Infrastructure Bill Overview and Update

One big bill project supported by both parties in Congress is the ‘Infrastructure Bill’.  It is anticipated that with new, COVID-19 induced broad-base support, quick passage could occur because of the impending elections.  As stimulating as this may be for many in the industry, we know projects and the required equipment don’t grow up overnight.  The CAPEX will be available now, but the output of new equipment may not necessarily keep pace with demand. Nor will the availability of a skilled workforce.  What does this mean for our industry and what can you do about it? 


  • Preston Ingalls, President/CEO, TBR Strategies LLC


Day Three: Wednesday, June 24


1:00 – 2:00 PM ET - Using Data Collaboration to Build Member Value

Join us for a discussion regarding a potential collaborative data project with the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) that would produce universal sets of data around fleet costs and performance tracking. The discussion will be focused around what data points would be helpful to provide for both AEMP and the CFMA constituencies.


  • Preston Ingalls, President/CEO, TBR Strategies LLC

Day Four: Thursday, June 25

1:00 – 2:00 PM ET - Maximize Results through Equipment Management Leadership Training

This session will feature a panel of executive equipment leaders showcasing how they’ve developed in-house training programs that support equipment managers and their teams to facilitate excellence in the profession and increase profitability for their companies.


  • Dan Dean, Branch Manager, Murphy Tractor & Equipment Co., Inc.
  • John Meese, CEM, Senior Director, Heavy Equipment Waste Management
  • Dan Hubbard, CEM, Director of Equipment, OMG Midwest 
  • Don Swasing, CEM, Chief Operating Officer, Schlouch Inc.
