Meeting reminder

Our April chapter meeting will be held on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at the Embassy Suites on Verdea Boulevard from 11:30am-1:00pm.  This month's program is a Facilities Round Table Discussion.  Please bring questions or topics you would like to discuss.

  CLICK HERE to register or read details.

Description of presentation:

Periodically, the Upstate SC Chapter of IFMA has an open, informal, roundtable discussion on any facility topics that the audience would like to hear in depth solutions to. The sessions are a chance to exchange ideas and learn that there is more than one way to solve a problem. Winston Anderson, of Piedmont Mechanical, former Facility Manager for Spartanburg County Government, will be the host and will hopefully be joined by some brave Facility Manager co-hosts.

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.”

-Winston Anderson, CFM & Upstate SC member since 2006
