Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

Albuquerque, NM 87109

Please join IFMA NM for an in depth discussion on Bikes and their impact on Facilities by Will Gleason and Dave Simon. As our conversations become filled with terms like bikeability, walkability, wellness and the need to bring more Millennials and GenX-Y’ers into our facilities, it becomes important for facility managers to know the needs and wants of different generations. Just putting a bike rack out is no longer enough. Learn what you as a facility manager need to know and also the facility requirements for employees as they reach your building.  Join us for a great presentation on issues and solutions that affect all of us.

Competencies: Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability,  Human Factors, Operations and Maintenance
