First Call for Baseball:
Get Your Box Seats Today

Wednesday night, June 13th, 2018, is the night to join your friends from the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico for an evening of baseball at "The Lab" as the Albuquerque Isotopes baseball team takes to the field against the Memphis Redbirds. With only 30 seats available, make your reservation today, or you may be left out.  This event always sells out.

Your $40.00 admission fee for members ($45.00 for non-members) includes tickets to the game and a delicious, gourmet ballpark buffet. Club seats and the open cash bar set the mood for the 7:05 pm first pitch, but plan to arrive at 6:00 pm to enjoy the food, friends, and ambiance. Held at the Jack Daniel's No.7 Club, this is an exclusive hospitality area  located behind Section 123, designed specifically for small, elite corporate groups.

Buy your tickets and pay with your credit card online at the website then contact Lori Gunnare at National Roofing ( or call 505-980-2247) to pick up your tickets at 3408 Columbia Drive NE in Albuquerque BEFORE the event.

This event replaces the monthly membership meeting. Invite your favorite facility manager for a great evening. Save your space today by going online to the Isotopes Baseball tab.

Fire Season and Code Updates:
Plan Ahead to Minimize Impacts

Plan today to join your friends and business associates with the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico on Wednesday morning, May 16th, 2018, starting at 7am, at the Garduno's Uptown Restaurant to hear important information about what will most likely be one of the most active fire seasons in the history of the state.

Lieutenant David Lujan has been the Public Information Officer for the Bernalillo County Fire Department for the past eight years and was a field paramedic previously. Whether you are a business owner, facility manager or employee, or resident of Bernalillo or any adjacent county, Lt. Lujan will share life/safety information as it relates to the probable outcomes of one of the longest stretches without measurable precipitation that the state has experienced in many years. Lt. Josh Allen with 16 years with BCFD will speak as well and will answer questions about facility fire code inspections and investigations.

Reservations are always required but FIRST TIME FACILITY MANAGERS are ALWAYS FREE. Invite one of your facility manager business associates to join you for breakfast and FMA will pick up the tab; just let us know who is coming. Registration closes on Monday, May 14th, so log on to to sign up and pay with your credit card (preferred) to be included.

May Executive Director's Corner

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 you to pledge your support for our 8th Annual Scholarship Fundraising Golf Tournament, held again this year at the beautiful Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course on Friday, July 27th, 2018, with an 9 am tee time

Save the date!  Ask anyone who has attended this event:  it is one of the most smoothly run, door prize-laden tournaments you will ever play in.  Last year, 139 golfers were not wrong!  We hope to meet or exceed that number this year.  It is always the party of the summer for facility managers and their supporters.

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

Remember, this fundraiser is our primary means of funding for the scholarships which FMANM supports 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 need to hire right now.

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

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