Changes Mark New Era of Professionalism for Facilities Managers

FMANZ is embarking on an exciting new era of professionalism through the introduction of new membership categories that will provide the stepping stones for Facilities Managers to progress towards attainment of Certified Professional Membership. The new categories and membership benefits have been tiered according to individual experience, skills and qualifications, from entry to senior level FM. Refer here for more information. Members will soon receive a notification asking if they wish to apply for a new membership category and an invitation to submit their application. Click here to see an example of how the CPD points system will work. 

FM Summit 2019 Taking Place in Wellington!

Next year's FM Summit will be held at Te Papa in Wellington, on Wednesday 26 & Thursday 27 June. This is the first time the Summit has been held outside Auckland, a move which recognises the Association’s nationwide reach. We'll be in touch soon with more details, including information on accommodation deals, but in the meantime, go online and book your flights to secure the best deals. 

New Professional Development Pathways Series

Keep an eye out for the new eye-catching logo (top left) which will accompany all correspondence about our new educational offering – the Professional Development Pathways Series - which replaces FMANZ's Master Classes. Supporting members' continuing professional development and career pathways, this series is a key aspect of FMANZ's broader education focus and a building block of the CPD Programme currently being developed. The offerings in this programme will be identified as either 101 - tailor-made for Junior FMs, 201 - aimed at Mid-management and Senior FMs or 301, catering for Executive level FMs. 

New Board Members Elected

Richard Wilson, current Chair of the Dunedin branch, was elected unopposed onto the FMANZ Board at the AGM in October. Formerly Facilities Manager at Otago Museum, Richard (pictured) has recently taken up the post of Assets and Facilities Team Leader at Dunedin City Council. Also elected unopposed after offering themselves for re-election, were Bruce Kenning (Central) and Anthony van Meer (Southern). Peter Harris (Southern) chose not to stand for re-election but stays on as Chair of the FMANZ Foundation. Jack Crutzen resigned from the Board on 2 October after the notification deadline for Board nominations. The Constitution provides for the Board to fill this vacancy for the unexpired term – to the 2019 AGM – by appointing a new Board member for the Northern Region.
