2019 CAFM Letter from the Chair

Facilities Leaders,

In 2019, the Corporate Architects and Facilities Managers (CAFM) Advisory Group is looking forward to your participation in our upcoming membership survey.  We are looking to gathering your thoughts and feedback as we begin to adapt the direction of the CAFM Advisory Group to focus on topics that are most relevant to the wide interests of the 6,000+ members of this Knowledge Community. 

We also want to hear your stories.  For many architects in the facilities world, the journeys from architecture school to your positions in corporations, higher education, or government are as varied as the roles you play in your current positions.  Those in-house in their organizations manage facilities, plan expansion, maintain corporate standards, and refine the built environment as an extension of the company's brand.  Read full letter >
