Industry Census Released
FMANZ members can now access the 2016-2017 Industry Trends and Insights Census. The fifth in the Facilities Management Industry Census series, this report explores a number of areas critical to the current and future state of FM in Australia and New Zealand. It gauges the perceptions of those engaged in FM activities, including the Practitioners who deliver services, the Purchasers who procure services, and the Suppliers who support the industry. Together with the first four Reports, this Census is helping to build a strong and timely profile of the industry, including current issues and challenges, while identifying key industry trends. This report is available to MEMBERS ONLY here. You will need to login with your Username (your membership number) and password. Please email Sascha membership@fmanz.org if you’ve forgotten your details. Happy reading!

Congratulations to FMANZ's First Diploma Graduate
Congratulations to Ashlee Jepson, FMANZ's first member to graduate with a Diploma of Facilities Management. The online course is presented by the Facility Management Association of Australia (FMA) and the University of New England (UNE). A Facilities Manager with Precinct Properties in Wellington, Ashlee enrolled in March 2016, and completed her final assignment in May this year. "I definitely recommend going for it," Ashlee advises other members considering the diploma. "There are so many things to learn, even for those who have been in the industry for a long period of time. The Diploma covers a wide range of topics that encourages everyone to really think about the role of an FM and alternative ways to undertake day to day tasks."

Congratulations to FMANZ's Award Winners
At the FM Summit Gala Awards Dinner held on Wednesday 3 May, FMANZ paid tribute to two of its members who have excelled in their profession. The Brian Happy Award for Facilities Manager of the Year was presented to Mark Sinclair, Managing Director of FM Concepts Limited, and Director of Facilities for the Britomart Group, which owns, develops and manages a 6.3 hectare site in downtown Auckland. Gregory Emms took away the Young Achiever of the Year Award, which recognises an FM professional under 35 years of age who has shown a strong and ongoing commitment to their personal development and that of the wider industry. A Lead Project Engineer in the Downer FM team, Gregory (31) supports Transpower NZ, helping to manage and maintain the non-generation assets on the Transposer National Power Grid.

FM Degree Underway
New Zealand’s first homegrown degree-level qualification, AUT's new Building Engineering major (Bachelor of Engineering Technology), opened its doors to students in February, with a pathway in Asset and Facilities Management. FM professionals are being asked to help build FM futures in New Zealand by providing scholarships, internships and mentoring opportunities for students.
