For now, find that ugly Christmas sweater and save the date.  Zoom meeting details distributed at a later date, please stay tuned!


AHOY 2020:

     For a while there I thought I was on the Titanic, headed for the ice burg, but I caught a life boat!  The Facility Manager Association of New Mexico finished the year strong, thanks especially to the anchor of our annual golf outing.   Executed in less than two months, the event sold out completely thanks to your support and assured smooth sailing for the organization's survival into what has to be a better year ahead.

With President Pat Dyer as Captain on the helm and Vice President John Dufay the Chief Mate on the bridge, we are navigating the turbulent seas of 2020 and heading into 2021.  Secretary and Quartermaster Leslie Yardman charts the course and helps predict the future based on the past.  Treasurers Dave Jensen and Lori Gunnare make sure we have bunker fuel money and a small reserve if we blow up the engine room.  Deborah Chavez is the "Face of the Crew" and newcomer Auri Vigil works alongside webmaster Roy Evans to make sure our radio call sign is broadcast for the next voyage.  Jessica Leyva helps the team fish for sponsorships and more.  Me? I liken myself to the Unsinkable Molly Brown!

This is a nice big life raft. Permission to come aboard granted.  Ahoy! Happy New Year!    



What an exciting year to be apart of the Facilities manager association of New Mexico! Although 2020 has presented us with an unprecedented time with regards to human life across the world. We will find a way to preserver and overcome as we always do! The evolution of the human spirt has carried us this far through our history, will be the benefactor in carrying us towards the future.

Although the world as we knew it has been altered due to the COVID-19 virus, the FMANM organization has stayed strong through these difficult times! We have supported our members by continuing our monthly FMA educational meetings, sharing up to date information regarding industry trends as it relates to the pandemic. Our most professional prized event the FMANM golf outing, was a huge success this year. We continue to serve as a professional and modern resource within this community.

I wanted to share with everyone some exciting news. We have added 3 new board members to the association this year. Leslie Yardman with Bank of Albuquerque AVP Facilities Manager II, comes to us over 25 years of commercial property management experience. She currently serves as the board secretary. Deborah Chavez with Mooring USA also comes to us with over 20 years of experience in business development and customer relations. You may have seen Deborah on the one of the FMA social media outlets. She currently has a general seat on the BOD.  We are also delighted to have our newest member Auri Vigil Marketing Manager with RoofCare. Auri has over 10 plus experience with digital marketing and is a welcomed site to our BOD.

The future looks exciting as we are eager to host another fun filled golf outing in 2021. We will also continue to focus on our monthly networking capabilities by continuing with our virtual meetings which highlight the latest building industry standards and best practices. Our social networking will also be a primary focus for 2021 as we are adjusting to the times. In addition, we will focus on our recruiting efforts as an organization. Our plan is to focus on our "the blue collar" industry workers for the upcoming year in hopes of building the FMANM membership base and making our tradeshow even bigger and better in 2022.  With a long-term goal of conducting social events in 2021, we will focus on providing our members with any information on building solutions when needed.

We are inviting everyone to connect with us. All ideas are welcomed as we look forward to an exciting 2021. I would encourage everyone to visit us at our website

President FMANM 2020


Is Your Building Sick?
Join Us for a Facility Manager's Guide
to Better IAQ and Healthy Remedies 

According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, the definition of a sick building is a building in which the environment puts the occupants at risk for upper respiratory infections.  Anyone who works in a building, a manufacturing environment, or even their home needs an understanding of the criticality of these conditions.  At the very heart of the matter, having an HVAC system that is free of chemical or biological contaminants is imperative for healthy Indoor Air Quality.

The Center for Disease Control advises that Covid-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person though respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected person, talks, sings, coughs, sneezes, etc.   What can you do to mitigate this threat?

Facility Manager Association of New Mexico member Amy Townsley with Steamatic of Albuquerque and Santa Fe will present important information on what NADCA deems a sick building and what you can do to make it better.  Steamatic is a NADCA certified air duct cleaning company and has been helping people who are responsible for the IAQ of their buildings, keeping them from becoming another sick building statistic.   A building can become sick from many different sources but this is now a critical issue given the challenge of the current pandemic. 

Join us on Wednesday morning, November 18th, 2020 at 8:30 am for an online course covering some of the proactive steps you can take to help eliminate these IAQ issues and keep the occupants of your space healthy and productive, whether at work or at home.  This program is open to all interested parties.  Invite your team members and anyone who would benefit from this information to join the FMANM conversation.   


Cleaning Reinvented:
New Technology Explored in September

The spread of the corona virus has forced anyone whose job includes the janitorial maintenance of a building to look for different answers to aid containment. Traditional dry dusting kicks up resting particles, redistributing them into the air and onto other surfaces. Wet dusting can involve harmful cleaning chemicals and make it hard to reach certain spots or objects. 

Technology has provided a new and safer technique called electromagnetic disinfecting systems.  But how does electrostatic spray surface cleaning work? And how do you make an informed decision on which product and service provider in the commercial cleaning market will best suit the needs of your particular facility?

Join the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico at 8:30 am on Wednesday morning, September 16th, 2020 as industry expert Ken Widman with The Clorox Company will present information on the basics of electrostatic deposition for use in disinfection. How can this scientific process be used to clean even those hard-to-reach, difficult-to-access areas of a facility?  Can the superior coverage afforded by this method help keep facilities healthier, while also saving time? 

If you are considering incorporating an electromagnetic disinfecting system into your cleaning regimen, you don't want to miss this presentation.  This meeting is open to all members of FMANM and any associate who would benefit from this knowledge.

Every Breath You Take:
How's the Air in Here?

August 19th at 8:30 am

Sam Perry with TLC Plumbing and Mike Farnsworth with Dynamic Air are a very busy team these days.  Facility managers and in fact anyone who works in or walks into any commercial building today has reasons to be concerned about Indoor Air Quality issues.  A best seller right now is an ultra violet treatment option which captures and inactivates mold, bacteria, and pathogens, all while maintaining or exceeding IAQ requirements.

Heating and air conditioning systems make up approximately 50% of total building energy consumption and it can be the primary expense in a building's operational costs. As much as half of that HVAC energy consumption is directly related to filtration.  In addition to assuring that the majority of the air handler units are operating optimally (a process which includes changing filters), new technology is now available to provide sustainable air cleaning filtration solutions for both new construction and existing buildings, helping to save energy and reduce operating costs.

Learn how to provide maximum and safe indoor air quality for people, productivity, and processes.  Join the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico for a video teleconference on Wednesday morning, August 19th 2020 at 8:30 am for this timely information provided by a local leader in the industry, TLC Plumbing, HVAC, and Electrical and their partner Dynamic Air.  This special FMANM meeting is open to anyone interested in the topic; please invite your business associates.
