Hello RFMA members,
Well, another great national conference. I appreciate all your engagement. I hope you all had a good time and were able to have some good takeaways. From the opening party at the Fairmont rooftop pool deck to the closing party at the Coppertank Event Center, there was plenty of opportunity to have fun and network with your peers and vendors. Hope you took advantage of the great educational sessions and spent plenty of time on the exhibit floor checking out new vendors and technologies that can make you more efficient.
During the Opening session Jim McKnight provided numerous examples and ways to create a "rocking" culture within your own company. It starts with you. Make an effort, make it work. You, along with your co-workers will appreciate each other more than you ever had and the entire organization will profit from it. As Jim said, EVERY employee changes the "culture". Be the positive one and reap the benefits.
It can be a bit overwhelming to get back into the work routine after the conference but now is the time to keep the momentum going on the items to assist you with your daily facilities responsibilities. Reach out to those vendors, suppliers, and peers on new initiatives that will benefit you and your company by saving time, money, and provide a better quality product and/or service. RFMA has the tools to help. Embrace the ever changing facility environment. Be proactive and make a difference. RFMA realizes you have to juggle several different jobs at once and we are here to help.
Thanks to all for making this conference a success. Don't hesitate to contact anyone at RFMA on any issue. Rest assured, we are already working on making the next conference in Denver better than Austin.
Dover and out.
