2021 Program Series

Posted on 03/05/2021 2:53 pm

During these unprecedented times impacted by a pandemic and an economic downturn, many of us who are responsible for the operational, preventive, and deferred maintenance needs of our facilities are being faced with significantly reduced budgets, staffing reductions, resource limitations, and uncertainty while continuing to ensure our buildings are not negatively impacted long term. In 2021, the IFMA Dallas-Fort Worth Program Committee sponsors a series of four programs focused on concepts, solutions, and results for achieving a balance between time, money, and obligations as we navigate through unchartered territories and safeguard our facilities portfolios during a challenging year ahead.

Program Theme: Achieving operational, preventive and deferred maintenance efficiencies.
