A NEW DIRECTION FOR IMPROVEMENT

Mission Statement:  To build Nevada's future Facility Managers through education and professional development.



2020 Annual Charity & Scholarship Golf Rescheduled

Please make a note of the new date: Friday, 10/09/2020

The health, safety and well-being of all of our valued NPFMA members, their families, their friends and coworkers is our highest priority. 

The President of the United States issued a National State of Emergency Declaration and the Health District issued public health recommendations and guidance for high-risk populations, workplaces and businesses, large gatherings, and schools. The guidance includes advice to high risk populations to limit their interactions, limiting travel to decrease exposures; and postponing non-essential events. At this time the CDC recommendation is to not hold meetings of 50 or more people. 

In response to everything happening in our community regarding COVID-19,  business and property closures, sporting and event cancellations, staff layoffs and cessation of work on many projects, with the uncertainty of what comes next and no immediate timeline forward, the NPFMA Board of Directors has voted to reschedule our golf tournament. All current sponsorships, foursomes, etc. will still be honored.

Our NPFMA Board is actively monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) updates from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) and will continue to respond based on the best advice of governments, public health authorities and medical professionals.

Reportedly, a vaccine for COVID-19 is now being tested in Washington state, but any success from this potential medicine is still a long way off. The best approach for all people toward any respiratory viral illness is to practice good personal health hygiene habits. According to SNHD, to prevent the spread of flu and viruses:

•    Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
•    Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
•    Avoid close contact with those who are sick.  
•    Stay home when you are sick.
•    Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

We are also encouraging all of our NPFMA members to take any signs of illness seriously and seek medical attention as needed. The first approach to medicine or treatment should be via telephone if at all possible. Our healthcare facilities are already overburdened and each additional body adds risk for both you and those inside. Look for contact phone numbers online or for more information visit: https://www.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/. For specific questions and answers about COVID-19, call the SNHD info line at (702) 759-INFO (4636).

Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We are in this together..  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. NPFMA is here for all our members in these difficult times.

Best Regards,

Pam Tyler
2020 NPFMA Board President
