The Industry Census Needs 15 Minutes of Your Time
FMA, in partnership with Programmed Facility Management and with the support of FMANZ, is calling on FM industry professionals (suppliers and practitioners) on both sides of the Tasman to take part in the 2016-17 Industry Census Survey. By offering essential and often surprising insights into areas critical to the growth and strategic direction of FM, the Census is a valuable resource for individuals and organisations working in the FM industry today. To ensure an accurate and holistic view of the industry in both Australia and in New Zealand is captured, your input is vital! (The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete.) Click here to start the survey now.
