World FM Day 2020
This year, now more than ever, World FM Day recognises the vital work of FMs and celebrates the diverse nature of this industry. Join the FMA for their Virtual World FM Day Networking Event.
Our Thought Leadership partners at the Facilities Management Association of Australia (FM) have a host of virtual events to celebrate World FM Day 2020. Get involved and take the opportunity to talk with peers, learn more about the work of FMs across the country, and hear from thought leaders in the industry.
What is World FM Day?
World FM day aims to raise the global profile of the facilities management profession.
From the largest office tower to industrial parks, from sporting facilities to residential buildings, the FM profession touches nearly everyone, everywhere in some way. In 2010, Global FM instigated World FM Day to recognise this and to promote the vital work of FMs and the industry around the globe.
World FM Day is a time when FM professionals take a moment to reflect on their past achievements while many embrace the opportunity to connect with other FMs in celebration.
It is also the day that the Global FM Awards are announced.
World FM Day is a day to share experiences, to promote our profession and, most importantly, to celebrate our successes.
Virtual World FM Day Networking Event
Once a year, the global facilities management community comes together to recognise the FM industry.
This year, given the current situation, FMA Australia is holding a Virtual Networking Event to celebrate the day and bring our FM industry together.
Facilities managers are the people who keep our built environment functioning safely and efficiently, even during times of crisis, and there’s no better time than now to recognise that.
While it is sometimes a hidden and thankless job, FM professionals have continued to work during the current pandemic so that our hospitals, supermarkets and other essential facilities can remain open.
The theme of World FM Day 2020 is Celebrating our Environment, acknowledging our respect for the environment and our continuing focus on sustainability. The FM industry is a key driver of practices that support sustainability and resilience across the built environment.
