2018 Fab O&M Show Smashing Success for All
Facility professionals converged in October at the Sandia Resort and Casino for innovative information provided by highly motivated suppliers, and to hear two expert speakers whose highly relevant topics underscored the credibility of the annual event. The Facility and Building Operations and Maintenance Show had free food, fifty-dollar gift cards, and a Halloween theme which set the stage as facility and building operations managers, engineers, and property managers from across the state networked together and visited with their current and future suppliers.
Three heavy hitting corporate sponsors underwrote the event for 2018: National Roofing, Johnson Controls, Inc., and JB Henderson Construction. Ruby Rose Macias, a Facility Manager for the Lovelace Health System commented, "I found that folks were willing to take the time to discuss their products and services in unhurried detail." The real estate giant CBRE deployed multiple property managers who visited each supplier booth. Lori Gunnare with National Roofing enthused, "I came away with five solid appointments."
Selby Lucero from Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union and Mike Chavez with Ace Asphalt both agreed with Facility Manager Association of New Mexico President Tom Plummer from the Indian Health Service that the spirit of friendliness and cooperation makes the event unique. The trade show was jointly sponsored by FMANM and new this year, the Associated Builders and Contractors of New Mexico.

In this season of gratitude, I am truly blessed by the support I receive from the members of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico as your Executive Director.
Fresh off another profitable golf tournament, the Facility and Building Operations & Maintenance Show was also a success. We were enthralled with quality of the supplier displays, captivated by two engrossing expert speakers on extremely pertinent facility related topics, and stunned by record numbers of facility managers in attendance. The wide-ranging variety of products and services represented and the enthusiastic effort by my supplier members to involve their present and future facility management associates undoubtedly contributed to a productive, high-energy event.
Back for 2018 at the beautiful Sandia Resort and Casino, the FAB O&M venue received raves as did the fun Halloween theme, the delicious food, and the riveting speakers. The spirit of enterprise through cooperation and relationship building set the stage for another memorable educational opportunity.
We are going strong! Special thanks for the guidance of my Board of Directors, but also thank you ALL, my facility managers, supplier members, and die-hard volunteers for your loyalty and encouragement.
