“It was hard to stay focused last Thursday, World FM Day, as I was teaching a class at IFMA HQ in Houston, TX. I kept wanting to sneak a peek at the Tweets or check the different event links across the globe," said Teena Shouse, Global FM chair. Check out these highlights from last week's event.
June 23, 2011 marks World FM Day 2011. As part of this worldwide event, Staples Advantage encourages every employee to find some way to thank his or her fm, not just on this day, but every day for helping to make a safer, healthier, and happier work environment.
With this event, professionals aim at raising the FM profession profile around the globe, promoting facilities management's ideals worldwide, not only within the profession and industry, but also among the governments and the general public.
Global FM held its 10th International Workshop in Atlanta, GA. Entitled “Managing FM Across Borders,” the event took place one day prior to IFMA's World Workplace in Atlanta, GA.
Teena G. Shouse, CFM, IFMA Fellow, is now the new chairperson of Global FM. She and the new board will unite efforts to accomplish the objectives and activities planned for 2011, making sure Global FM continues to grow and to live up to its mission: to promote the strategic value and progress of facilities management.
The Awards recognize efforts by individuals or teams within the FM industry — from researchers to facilities operators — who have made a positive contribution to the knowledge, practical application and communication of strategies to improve the workplace environment.
