A NEW DIRECTION FOR IMPROVEMENT
Mission Statement: To build Nevada's future Facility Managers through education and professional development.
A MESSAGE FROM 2021 PRESIDENT HANS GOTTSCHALDT
Dear NPFMA Members,
Congratulations for surviving the wild ride of 2020! As we hope for a return to normalcy, I am optimistic that it will slowly happen this year. We have all dealt with change, and I am incredibly grateful for your continued support. While online meetings are not as conducive to networking, a shout out to all who jumped in and participated.
Last year, with just two in-person meetings before the pandemic shut-downs, we accomplished much. Our scholarship fund distributed over $25,000 in less than two years to qualified applicants. We also volunteered at Three Square in February 2020 and continued our longstanding collaboration with CIS of Nevada’s annual “Fill the Bus” campaign. Our members generously made it possible to provide over 300 backpacks and many more critical supplies to local at-risk students. In the fall, our members came together for a young men’s clothing drive to benefit Project 150. We look forward to continuing giving back to our community this year!
Moving forward, I am eagerly awaiting our live and in-person meetings just as you are. This year will bring opportunities to reconnect, to provide facilities education to both managers and vendors, and to continue reaching out to our community.
In this, our thirtieth year as an organization, it’s amazing to think about the good this group has accomplished in three decades of building fraternity, strengthening relationships, developing and educating our members, active engagement in community service, and the benefits of impacting countless lives. To consider all of people who have learned and laughed in this group over thirty years is a marvel to contemplate.
In addition to live breakfast meetings, we eagerly anticipate our annual golf tournament in May, planning a shooting event for the fall and kicking around some other event ideas as well.
This year, I am making it my personal mission to fill the breakfast speaker lineup with some of the best you’ve ever heard. Attendees will experience some behind-the-scenes facility videos from exciting locations and some podcasts showcasing the facilities managers and vendors in our group. Our goal is to make our events fun, intriguing and innovative as we mix things up by adding online content as this world around us evolves!
I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to seeing each one of you at our functions. NPFMA will deliver new adventures and resources for members as we celebrate thirty years of our organization and build its future. Thank you for your partnership in making this association exciting, fun and rewarding.
Yours in gratitude and service,
