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.
