The average age of the facility management workforce is 50.9 years old, according to a recent survey shared by IFMA in March 2017. Even as the scope of the profession expands, facility management faces a critical shortage of qualified new talent to fill the shoes of industry veterans. At Facility Executive Live!, an industry event on October 3, 2017, this issue will be addressed during the Next Gen FM Panel Discussion. Held in downtown Chicago, this one-day event is produced by Facility Executive magazine.
Panelists for the Next Gen FM topic will share insights on how facility leaders can prepare today for this expected talent gap in order to keep their organizations operating smoothly throughout the coming transition.
Throughout the day, Facility Executive Live! attendees will have access to six conference sessions on various topics, meals, and networking with peers and sponsors. Each of the 60-minute sessions is approved for continuing education credits offered by BOMI International.
In addition to Next Gen FM, these BOMI-accredited sessions are:
- Technology and FM: A 360 Degree View
- Creating An Energy Roadmap
- Workplace Violence And The Active Shooter
- Stories From The Field: Facility Executives Of The Year Roundtable
- Making An Impact With Workplace Design
The $75 registration fee provides facility professionals a robust education program, coupled with the opportunity for networking. The registration rate for student attendees is $35.
The event is being held at the Summit Executive Centre on North Michigan Avenue in Chicago. To register today or to find out more, visit the Facility Executive Live! website.
