Think it's hard to make new contacts?  Just pick up the wrong ball at our golf tournament!





           Service Master Performance and Keenan Supply are underwriting the exciting Hole-in-One $10,000.00 prizes on the course.  With the pledges of door prizes accumulating, anticipation is building for the event.  The beautiful Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course is the setting for the event again this year with range balls at 8 am and a 9 am tee time on Friday morning, July 27th, 2018.

                                    WHERE IS YOUR COMPANY?

    Although the registration cut off date has passed, THERE IS STILL TIME to put in a team of players or sponsor at any level on the course.  Visit the website at www.fmanm.com where sign up is easy, or just call Executive Director Carolee Griffin at 505-377-5309 for instant registration.

Baseball Was a Blast
See you Next Year!

    All the tickets for the annual Albuquerque Isotopes baseball outing sold out in a matter of days.  Our fabulous home team the AlbuquerqueIsotopes fell 11-0 to the Memphis Redbirds but the opportunity to catch foul balls was exponential.  The food was truly gourmet with a wide selection of traditional ball park favorites augmented by a New Mexican twist.   
A beautiful evening with friends.  See you next time!

New Year’s Reflections from
the FMANM Board Members

George Jimenez, Facility Manager, Nusenda: In our busy schedules in Facility Management and Maintenance, there never seems to be a shortage of the next reactive emergency that we are called upon to solve. Our FMANM Board members make our daily facility challenges better by providing a lot of our Supplier related answers. As a Board member over the years I have come to depend on all of you to basically help get it done. Beyond this, we need to reflect at not only this time of the year on those less fortunate but to always realize that there is someone in need out there. I personally wish to convey my thanks to all of you for just being a phone call away. Feliz Navidad y Prospero Ano!

Kevin Givens, Sales Engineer, The Johnston Company: I have held the title of secretary since 2010 and I am glad to schedule our Board meetings, document and publish meeting minutes, and assist with all of the monthly program meetings and fund-raising events. Through my “day job” at The Johnston Co., I am also a corporate member of FMANM, a sponsor of the annual golf tournament, and exhibitor at the FAB O & M Show. For 2018, I hope to increase FMANM’s contribution to the CNM / UNM scholarship fund by helping to contribute to a meaningful lineup of program speakers and fund-raising events that members find valuable and educational—events that members say to themselves “I can’t miss that!” Thank you for your support and your business!

Attention Healthcare Facility Managers
Or Any FM Who Needs Compliance Training:
Here is a Resource 

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Hazardous Waste Bureau conducts hazardous waste inspections at hospitals, pharmacies, as well as other types of facilities.  They offer their services to conduct free training concerning managing hazardous waste at hospitals and pharmacies.  Having recently conducted inspections at several hospitals, they have found the majority of them to be out of compliance.  Their aim to provide this training to large audiences spreads the information more quickly than individually inspecting each hospital/pharmacy.

But beyond healthcare, NMED believes they might be able to target some training for other diverse and various types of facilities.  Compliance assistance is a key component in their program and keeping facilities in compliance makes the job a lot easier. 

Need more information to start this discussion? Contact Janine Kraemer, CHMM, Hazardous Waste Supervisor for the New Mexico Environment Department, 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1,Santa Fe NM 87505 office  505-476-4372, or email to janine.kraemer@state.nm.us  or connect with Facility Manager Association’s vice president, Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Services at thomas.plummer@ihs.gov
