2016 Facility and Building Operations & Maintenance Expo
Deemed a Success by Exhibitors and Facility Managers Alike

Suppliers and facility professionals converged on The Hotel Cascada in October to share resources and information at the 2016 FAB O&M Show.   Free food, fifty-dollar gift cards, and a Halloween theme set the stage as facility and building operations and maintenance folks visited with their current and future suppliers.

Facility Manager Bob Schumaker from the hotel stated, “I set four appointments to meet this week with suppliers I met at the show. I will need these folks for upcoming service issues.  FMA provides a great service by putting on this show.  It brings new suppliers and facility mangers together.”

Lori Gunnare with National Roofing, whose company corporately sponsored the event, enthused, “I came away with five solid appointments.”   Chief Engineer Victor Marquez with Allegiance Realty Corporation commented, “I found that folks were willing to take the time to discuss their products and services in unhurried detail.”  Sandoval County’s Director of Public Works Tommy Mora found time to attend and brought several of his key staff members to enjoy the show.

Selby Lucero from Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union and Becca Hall with Armour Pavement both agreed with Facility Manager Association of New Mexico President Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Service that the spirit of friendliness and cooperation made the event unique.  The trade show was jointly sponsored by FMANM and the FMANM Healthcare Committee.

Nov 16 Executive Director

As your Executive Director, I recognize that I am truly blessed and touched by the support I receive from the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico.

Fresh off the best golf tournament in the history of the organization, the Facility and Building Operations & Maintenance Show was unprecedented for the quality of supplier displays and the number of facility managers in attendance.  The wide-ranging variety of products and services represented and enthusiastic effort by the supplier members to involve their present and future facility management associates undoubtedly contributed to the productive, high energy event. 

Our venue, the conveniently located Hotel Cascada, the Halloween theme, the delicious food, the nicely-appointed conference hall, and spirit of enterprise through cooperation and relationship building  set the stage for another memorable educational opportunity. 

Thank you for your support.  FMANM is not only strong but thriving beyond belief in a still difficult atmosphere.  Thank you to my Board of Directors, but also, thank you ALL, facility managers and supplier members, for your loyalty and encouragement.  TOGETHER we are FMANM.

Sixth Annual Golf Scholarship Fundraiser
Featured Happy Crowd, Door Prizes for All!

With 124 golfers and 11 helpers, the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico 2016 Scholarship Fundraiser Golf Tournament will guarantee a record donation this December to the scholarship funds at Central New Mexico Community College and The University of New Mexico.  Enjoying a picture perfect day at the Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course,  golfers and golf helpers alike left the event with a door prize in hand.

Loyalty from the membership and its many supporters (both members and non-member companies alike) who believe in and support our educational initiative is the one constant factor in the annual event’s continued success.  Distinct contributions, both large and small, from countless companies and outstanding individuals personalized the gathering.

Again the trend to companies fielding multiple teams of golfers continued as they competed in the Championship Division to win the esteemed silver trophy.

Tables full of valuable door prizes mitigated even a bad day on the greens.  Power tools, a bicycle, restaurant gift certificates, camping gear, and loads of golf equipment and much much more left with the athletes after the post-game buffet.

“Christmas in July!” exclaimed Phill Jester with IntraWorks. “Once again this tournament is the best in town!”

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  or connect with Facility Manager Association’s vice president, Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Services at
