MEETA Asset Management


The MEETA Asset Management society is a special interest group for maintenance, reliability and asset management practitioners, providing CPD and networking events for engineers. 

The MEETA Asset Management society was created over 35 years ago, as an amalgamation of the National Maintenance Association (NMA) and the Energy Management Association, as well as incorporating the technology of environment protection. The Society was initially called MEETA - for Maintenance, Energy and Environment Technology Association. In the 1990s, MEETA engaged with the then Institution of Engineers of Ireland and became a Society. This relationship has prospered and now MEETA is an established Engineers Ireland Society.

Our operating model is to promote asset management, maintenance and reliability best practices and knowledge; to help drive real improvements in the Irish industrial setting. Our national committee comprises members from various sectors of industry and service providers, each with a unique perspective on asset management. One key focus area is improving and sharing best practices. We combine a virtual and face to face approach through a series of asset management events, including site visits. Our national conference and awards ceremony are held annually in November each year. We also promote asset management education and work closely with 3rd level institutions to ensure the next generation of asset managers are catered for too. At our 2021 AGM, we adopted our name to ‘MEETA Asset Management’, to help with our brand recognition and promotion.
