What you Might have missed-February Event


Our February Educational event yesterday (2/27) drew a large crowd of Facility managers and Associates.  We also welcomed two new members, Eric Havens  of the Christian Sharing Center and Katie Wiles of Raymond Engineering.  Our 50/50 raffle sales were conducted by Suzanne Larson of Rapid Response Team and the lucky winner was Fred Grob of Diversified
Kevin Dupree ,CFM, made an announcement that the company he is working for has NO vendors so all at the meeting were encouraged to send their info to this new company (you can locate him on the website directory).  What an opportunity for our associate members!  David Dunn, CFM did a great presentation on staff development.  His presentation and supporting documents you can use are posted here
