Hello RFMA Members,

It's only two (2) months until our national conference in Denver, running from March 8-10th. Are you ready? Have you registered and made hotel reservations? The national conference is such a busy time. It gives everyone a great opportunity to learn, network, and explore methods on saving valuable R&M dollars and look at better ways to take care of your facilities. The conference is designed and intended to to make your life easier in protecting your company's assets. It is the only conference designed specifically for restaurant facility professionals.

Due to the size and scope of this event, it is recommended doing a little research to gain as much knowledge as possible. The RFMA Conference App will be available in a few weeks but feel free to visit our conference website at www.rfmaannualconference.com to review all the scheduled events. Reviewing these will give you a better opportunity for scheduling your time efficiently. Check out all the great educational sessions to determine which is best suited for you and your company. Are you looking for new vendors or following up with existing ones? The Exhibitor List shows who's attending along with where their booth is located. With more than 300 booths, it can be a bit overwhelming if you do not have an effective game plan when the conference floor is open so plan accordingly. Make sure to sign up for the Restaurant Roundtables as these provide an excellent opportunity to network with other facility professionals in your same geographical area(s).

If you are arriving early, don't forget to sign up for the 5K Fun Run/Walk which benefits RFMA Gives 2021. Enjoy the conference and have fun. There are no secrets being shared just great restaurant facility best practices. Lastly, don't forget to stop by the RFMA booth to learn more or ask questions. We are here to help. See ya soon!

Dover and out.

Are You Ready For The Conference?

Hello RFMA members,

Time sure flies by. It seems like yesterday we were getting ready for our get together in San Diego. Now, it's almost time for our next national conference in Nashville beginning on March 13th. Are you ready? Have you registered and made travel and hotel arrangements? This is always an exciting time at RFMA. The conference gives everyone a great opportunity to learn, network, and investigate ways to save precious dollars in your overall facilities costs along with making your life easier to maintain all your restaurants. This is the only conference designed specifically for restaurant facility professionals.

Due to the size and scope of this event, I recommend doing a little homework to gain as much knowledge as possible. The RFMA Conference App will be available in February but you can visit our conference website, www.rfmaannualconference.com,  now to review all scheduled events. Make sure to check out the times and topics for the great educational sessions. Are you looking at increasing your knowledge for Disaster Planning, Vendor Management, or Negotiating Services? We have these along with many more. How about investigating new vendors or touching base with existing ones? Review the exhibitor list and note the location of the booths you'll want to visit. With all the booths, it may be a bit overwhelming, which requires an efficient game plan. Make sure to sign up for the Restaurant Roundtable as it provides a good chance to network with other facility professionals in your same geographical area(s).

Lastly, if you are able to arrive early, sign up for our Fun Run/Walk benefiting RFMA Gives 2017 or play in the golf tournament. Have fun at the conference. There's really no secrets. We are all here to learn and share restaurant facility best practices. And don't forget to stop by the RFMA booth to learn more. We'll here to help.

Dover and out.
