Meeting reminder

Our March chapter meeting will be held on Thursday, March 8, 2018 at the Embassy Suites on Verdea Boulevard from 11:30am-1:00pm.  This month's program is a presentation on BMW's solar power initiative.

  CLICK HERE to register or read details.

Description of presentation:

Solar power panels can be seen from the Interstate.  Have you wondered what those panels power?  What were the decisions behind installing solar power?  What were the challenges with this project installation?  Cleve will speak on the solar power initiative at BMW. 

You don’t know what you don’t know!

“If facility managers do not budget time to learn, then they will continue to run around and stomp out fires. Eventually, the fires will consume them.”
