Letter From the President

Letter from the President (.pdf)

Thank you to all the members who voted for the Board positions.  Congrats to our winners:  Vice President Jacob (Jake) Malone, Secretary Gary Rudkin and Treasurer Keith Vandenbussche.  I am honored to be elected as your present.  Thank you each for your commitment to our Council.

On behalf of the Board I would also like to sincerely thank Keith Vandenbussche for his time as the Board President.  This role requires a lot of organization and people skills.  Keith has done an excellent job over the past few years providing Council leadership.  Thank you, Keith!  Happily, Keith is continuing on as a MILC Board officer.

In the coming months, the Board has plans in place to continue to offer monthly webinars provided by council members that are of specific interest to those of us involved with facility management of manufacturing, industrial and logistic facilities.  These webinars will be interspersed with virtual roundtables as an opportunity to share with other MILC members what works and doesn’t work in addressing an identified facility management issue.  We are also planning to regularly reconvene roundtables to discuss the unique challenges of managing a national and international portfolio of industrial facilities following a very animated roundtable on this subject in July.  Stay tuned for other Council initiatives as well.

And last but certainly not least, World Workplace is coming up Oct 2-5..  World Workplace is always a great conference and expo that includes many valuable educational sessions and networking experiences.  If you are attending, please stop by our Council booth at the Council & Community Pavilion – Booth #134, and join our gathering at 4:30 PM on October 3 (more information coming).
