Take That 2020!
Golf Outing was a Success!

Congratulations to EverGuard Roofing and Solar's Team One for winning the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico's 2020 Golf Outing and Scholarship Fundraiser held Friday, October 2nd at the Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course.  Close second went to B&D Industries who tied the EverGuard score but came up just short on one of the more difficult holes, this determination made by the course's official professional.  TLC Plumbing and Utility came in with the third place score.

Eighty golfers participated and hit the greens in a staggered deployment, keeping in solidarity with the mandates of the Pueblo of Isleta's Covid-19 precautions.  The sport of golf provides the opportunity to distance socially and the beautiful day, topping out in the low 80's with a slight breeze, provided the perfect safe backdrop for the event.

Door prize donations again rolled in and an unofficial post-play event was hosted on the open-air patio by the Stoneface Tavern where jam-packed goody bags were distributed to the happy golfers and their supporters.

"The course was in very good shape and golf was excellent and fun…..I saw many people having fun and enjoying the day.  Even under social distancing and masks, etc., we visited with many golfers in our carts, six to eight feet apart, and it was still a great time," commented John Dufay, FMANM vice president and Executive Director of Operations and Maintenance for Albuquerque Public Schools.

"I noticed the logos streaming on the cart GPS units advertising our suppliers who had purchased sponsorships.  The course was in really great shape! Overall a success!" added FMANM president Patrick Dyer with Presbyterian Medical Services.

THANK YOU for playing in the Oct 2 2020 Annual Scholarship Golf Fundraiser supporting the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico.

The scores are in and the winner is the EverGuard Roofing and Solar Team One!  As you can see by the template below, they tied with Team B&D Industries and a close third goes to Team TLC Plumbing and Heating.

According to my course pro at Isleta Eagle Golf Course, this is how the tie was broken:  Holes are ranked from hardest to easiest on the scorecard.  Start with the hardest hole and compare scores.  If there is a tie on that hole, move to the next hardest hole and so on and so on until one team finally has a better score on an individual hole.  EverGuard and B&D tied each other on the first and second ranked holes.  On the third hardest hole, Team EverGuard shot a birdie and Team B&D was par.  This is where Team EverGuard won in the playoff.    

Did you get any pictures on the course that would be appropriate for our newsletter?  If so, please forward to carolee@fmanm.com

THANK YOU for everyone who brought me a door prize.  Door prize distribution mode is gearing up!

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.
