Get to know John Foley at RFMA 2015
RFMA
John Foley's personal path to high performance began as a child, when he stood alongside his father at an air show featuring the Blue Angels. From that moment, John knew deep in his heart that someday he'd be carving up the skies as a member of the Blues. Eventually, he lived that dream, but getting there wasn't easy. In fact, John's journey from an awestruck child at an air show to the cockpit of the Blue Angels' F/A-18 Hornet is a study in persistence, hard work and the will to overcome obstacles and setbacks. John's keynote will challenge you to the be the best you can be and to believe in yourself and your teammates. Hear John's story at RFMA 2015 at Monday's General Session.

Facilitator: When a slow drain becomes a big issue
Beth Krantz
What's worse than an upset customer? A backed-up drain in the middle of the dining room floor. Because so much water is used in a restaurant, plumbing issues happen all the time. Yet they are an issue that often falls low on a restaurant facility manager's priority list until there's an emergency situation.

How building commissioning relates to total cost of ownership
David E. Patnaude
As facilities professionals, we are often asked to work on projects and tasks that go beyond the day-to-day operation of our facilities. The types of projects and tasks I'm talking about include capital planning, construction project management and long-term master and capital planning. Often we enter this process with precise institutional knowledge, along with our intuition regarding particular items or projects. Once we have identified these priorities, we need to be able to present the proposal to senior management in a way that allows them to quickly understand, analyze and decide upon the proper course of action.
