Come Fly with Us in May!  Lunch and Learn:
Explore Drone Technology for Facilities Applications

Registration is now Closed

Make your reservation TODAY to join the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico on Wednesday morning, May 15th at 11:30 am at the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque Balloon Museum (9201 Balloon Museum Dr NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113) for lunch and a flying exhibition demonstrating the latest applications of the use of drones for facility management and commercial real estate services. PLEASE NOTE, space will be limited and you MUST rsvp by Monday, May 6, 2019, to guarantee your participation.

Jesse Sansom, drone pilot, designer and graphic artist with the Colibri Media House, will provide a brief historical perspective on the early development of these unmanned aerial vehicles, beginning with early applications for offensive uses, development by the military in World Wars I and II, and into the modern age with advances in solar powered and recreational uses for today's drones.

But why do facility managers and property owners need to understand this new technology? It is now possible to accurately survey acres of property within days, not weeks.  3D models allow you to take measurements that are accurate within inches, eliminating the guesswork with Google Earth-type services.  It is possible to obtain real time data to monitor facility structure, rooftop conditions, and to view every square inch of your property without leaving your desk. What are the latest on laws and regulations for commercial drone operations?  What are some expert tips for hiring legal, reputable, professional drone operators? What are the right questions to ask to get the results you want? What lies ahead in the future?

Space is limited and YOU MUST RSVP by MONDAY MAY 6th, 2019 to be included. Registration has been closed.

Casual Networking Event
Drew a Crowd in April

Special appreciation to John Chilelli with DVL, Jessica Leyva from Honeywell, and Cort Furniture's Christi Zimmerman for sponsoring the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico April event as we mixed and mingled on a rainy Wednesday night.  The innovative and redeveloping Old Town neighborhood of Albuquerque provided the backdrop as new connections were made and old friendships were rekindled.  Food and beverages disappeared in the spirited atmosphere of a micro- brewery. Thank you to everyone who attended.  

Would you like to sponsor a future event?  Contact Carolee at 505-377-5309 for more opportunities to position your company in front of New Mexico's facility management community.    



Executive Director Column

My "Golf Gang" is hard at work and you will receive a phone call or an email from a member of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico's golf outreach team asking for your support for our 9th Annual Scholarship Fundraising Golf Tournament, held again this year at the beautiful Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course on Friday, July 19th, 2019, with an 9 am tee time.

Save the date! We have a smoothly run show and the massive prize give-aways are a big attraction. Last year, 139 golfers enjoyed the best-ball scramble. Time again to golf and enjoy camaraderie with facility managers and their supporters.

Thinking about sponsoring? Get more free publicity for your company by sponsoring NOW rather than waiting until the last minute.

FMANM supports scholarships for the trades at the University of New Mexico and at the Central New Mexico Community College. CNM has been underscored recently because the tradesmen and women trained there are the facility managers of the future, and the certified, skilled technicians we all need to hire right now.

Register your foursome, sponsor the event at the Platinum, Gold, or Silver level, purchase the Hole in One, buy a hole sponsorship, or just donate a nice door prize.
