FM Summit 2017  - If you do nothing else before shutting up office for the year, do this: Block out Wednesday 3rd & Thursday 4th May in your diary to ensure you don't miss out on FM Summit 2017! It's lining up to be the best Summit yet, with two days of thought-leadership sessions and informative seminars, FMANZ's Gala Awards Dinner,  a boutique Trade Expo, a new 'FM 101' series, breakfast sessions, panel discussions and much more. If you work in FM, you won't want to miss this opportunity to network, up skill and look to the future. Registrations open in early February. If you missed this year's Summit - or just want to remind yourself how good it was - click here for a short video of highlights and interviews.

Have you got what it takes to be the 2017 Facilities Manager of the Year? Nominations are now open for the FMANZ Awards, to be presented at the Gala Awards Dinner on 3 May. The Brian Happy Award for Facilities Manager of the Year will be awarded for outstanding performance by an individual working in the FM profession. The judges are looking for nominees who have applied their experience and knowledge to produce exceptional results within their facility and/or organisation, as well as demonstrating excellent personal qualities. The Young Achiever of the Year Award will be presented to an FM professional under 35 years of age who has shown a strong and on-going commitment to their personal development and that of the wider industry. We encourage you to support your peers by nominating them, or why not suggest that a colleague or client nominates you if you feel you’re deserving. Entries close 28 February 2017. Click here to find out more.

Speaking of awards, nominations are also open for the new Branch and National Service Awards. These awards have been established to recognise the hard work and dedication of FMANZ members at branch and national level, and will be presented each year at the Gala Awards Dinner in May. Read more about the awards here.

FM is in the spotlight in the latest LEAVING SCHOOL magazine, delivered free to all high school students in Years 10-13. See page 38. Thanks to Stuart Bryant for flying the FM flag and promoting FM as a career of choice.

What is Facilities Management?


The Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO) defines a Facilities Manager as one who ‘organises, controls and coordinates the strategic and operational management of buildings and facilities in public and private organisations to ensure the proper and efficient operation of all physical aspects of a facility, to create and sustain safe and productive environments for occupants.’
