Letter from Your Chapter President

Dear Members:

I hope this note finds all of you safe and healthy. Last Thursday, we were fortunate to have three of our members, David Dunn, Chris Solomon, and Dean Cousins (all CFMs) virtually provide us their Facility Management perspective on the current COVID-19 impact to local government operations.  They have kindly agreed to again virtually return next Thursday (May 7th - starting at 11:30 am.) to provide an update and expand discussion to our associates that have been impacted by or are providing specific services in response to COVID-19; especially as we begin to return to the workplace

What you MIGHT have missed-May7th




Due to the great feedback from our April 23 Panel Discussion, the chapter hosted a "part two" panel discussion on May 7th to see how things were going two weeks later.  This time, we called out to our Annual Sponsors and other Associates for their feedback on dealing with the COVID crisis as well.  As facilities start thinking about reopening, employee safety is a big concern since many fear of returning. Figuring out social distancing and what that will look like in facilities will be a challenge but our FMs are figuring it out! 

Both sessions were excellent and a big thank you to Jim Connell of Suddath Relocation services for serving as moderator and our panelists, Chris Solomon, CFM (OCPS), Dean Cousins,CFM (Orange County Government) and David Dunn. CFM (City of Orlando).
