2017 and the Technical Evolution:
How the “Internet of Things” Affects You

From Web-enabled building automation systems to wireless monitoring of building equipment and occupancy, enhanced connectivity is changing how facilities are managed. Building “Internet of Things (IoT)” technology touches HVAC, lighting, security and many other aspects of facility management as well as your everyday living.  Facility managers, their engineers, and building owners now have access to incredible technology to improve the comfort of work environments, productivity, processes, energy efficiency and responsiveness. More importantly, this technology will gradually spread to touch the lives of almost every citizen in modern society.

Come join members and guests of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico on Wednesday morning, January 18, 2017 at 7 am for breakfast and a fascinating introduction to the “Internet of Things” as Garduno’s Uptown opens for exclusively for this presentation and networking opportunity. FMA President Tom Plummer, P.E., Director of Health Facilities for the Albuquerque Area Indian Health Services will bring his passion, personal experience, and captivation with this technological evolution to his presentation.

Cost for members is $30.00 and non-members pay $35.00. Click here to register and pay via credit card to be included. P.S. First-time Facility Managers are always welcome to attend at no cost (but please register so we know who to expect).

Holiday Party Featured Fun for All

Happy folks in the holiday spirit enjoyed an early afternoon of camaraderie and sharing the bonds that make this organization special as they gathered together to welcome in the new challenges of a new year.  President Tom Plummer anchored the festivities and collected checks for a local homeless shelter to further the organization’s community outreach.

FMANM completed 2016 on a high note with another successful, door-prize laden golf tournament which was held in July.  This event is followed by the only tradeshow directed towards facility managers, engineers, and building owners and property managers, the Facility and Building Operations and Maintenance Show, held last October.  

Thank you for your support.

 

 


President - Tom Plummer

As I heard it recently said, the turn to a new year needs to be a balance of what we learned and experienced in the past year with what we hope to accomplish in the new year. Last year in FMANM afforded us the opportunity to learn about a broad range of topics: from ecurity to Building Envelopes and from Facility Economics and Sustainability to the interfac of Technology and Human Interaction! We got to experience another great Golf Tournament at the Isleta Eagle course as well as another Facility and Building Operations Trade Show!

But we at the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico are wanting to 'crank it up a notch' for 2017! We will be tapping into some local expertise to bring you some great presentations at our breakfast meetings and some more fun as we join together for another Car / Motorcycle Show and Poker Run! In particular we want to continue to
focus on our primary mission of supporting the tradesmen and facility professionals of the future. Thanks to the support of our members we are expecting to give another check to CNM so they can provide scholarships to students who are up-and-coming in facilityrelated fields of study (don't miss our March 15th meeting). Also, we will have a CNM representative come share with us about one of their latest programs (Hint: it will directly contribute to one of New Mexico's fastest growing business sectors - Craft Brewing! Can anyone give me a ‘second to the motion' of field trip?

I would be remiss if I didn't thank the Board of Directors for their continued efforts and vote of confidence as they re-seated me as President of FMANM again this year, along with Selby Lucero as Vice President.

Finally, if you are not an FMANM member yet, please take that small step to build your business relationships and capture the great experiences you can have that will help improve your job performance. We make work more fun and productive! Put www.FMANM.com in you
browser favorites and join us for some educational and entertaining events in 2017!

Best regards,
Tom Plummer, P.E.
Director for Healthcare Facilities

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.

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 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
