  • A variety of industrial and professional organizations have emerged to provide a forum for infrastructure managers and indeed to support the notion that the discipline itself represents a discrete field of study within the engineering profession. These organizations provide a means of spreading relevant information, such as best practices and job availability. However, these organizations often are limited to particular types of infrastructure or specific regions or countries. A partial list of related professional organizations associated with the practice of infrastructure management in the United States is listed below:

    • APPA (www.appa.org) Association of Physical Plant Professionals
    • ASCE (www.asce.org) American Society of Civil Engineers
    • ASME (www.asme.org) American Society of Mechanical Engineers
    • SAME (www.same.org) Society of American Military Engineers
    • BOMA (www.boma.org) Building Owners & Managers Association
    • IFMA (www.ifma.org) International Facilities Management Association
