Invitation to join the First FM Stakeholders Meeting, 22nd of February 2018 in Lisbon
As it is firmly recognized that Facility Management is a holistic integration of people, spaces and processes, it is not quite so when it comes to the integration with the several departments and C-suites within the organization.
Facility managers not seldom suffer from bad communication channels with key areas such as Procurement, Human Resources, IT, Finance, among others.
The Portuguese Institute for Facility Management (APFM) has started to build working groups and partnerships with professionals and fellow associations that represent colleagues from these other departments to bring usually conflicting views to the same room and look for a mutual understanding and common future goals.
If you wish to partake in the discussions in 2018 please email via firstname.lastname@example.org and save the date of the 22nd of February 2018 to come to Lisbon to attend the “FM Stakeholders Meeting” that will coincide with the CEN TC 348 Plenary Meeting.
The venue is at Hotel ALTIS Grand and special fees are available if you book this way:
All hotel room reservations with the ALTIS Grand Hotel can be done directly with the hotel.
Participants must inform that they are belonging to the Group “TC348 event” in order to enjoy the special discount fee.

A EuroFM member? Visit the next open CEN/TC 348 20th meeting February 22nd 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal!
The CEN/TC 348/WG 8 (technical body 348, working group 8) is currently working on a new norm: “Functions, Roles, Responsibilities and Competencies of the Facility Manager” Our EuroFM members might find it interesting to take notice of the developing ideas and to give input.
There is an open program on the 22nd of February 2018. A modest (FM stakeholders conference) meeting in the morning, like members know from the common Members Meetings of EuroFM. Next to that there will also be social program on the 21 and the 22. EuroFM members are welcome to arrive on the 21 and leave 22nd in the afternoon or arrive 22 very early and leave on the 23. There is also a possibility to join some of the meetings as guests, so members can even stay a bit longer.
All of this can be arranged according to availability.
For the social program and the dinner each day the organization does not cover the costs. Each participant will have to cover these themselves.
