The Facility Doctors is a new column in the pages of Facility Manager magazine co-edited by Dr. Kimberly Mahoney and Professor Gil Fried. The column appeared in the March/April issue and the next installment is in the May/June magazine.
But we need your help, or more specifically, your questions for The Doctors to answer.
The column is designed to serve as a bridge between the profession and academia and allow the two sides to help each other grow. Through academicians providing insight from their perspective and industry professionals highlighting real issues they face, both sides can work together to train the next generation of venue managers.
Sources for Column Content:
This column provides an easy opportunity to directly impact the content of Facility Manager. What topics would you like to see addressed? What issues have you faced recently that you think should be discussed with the membership? What trends should be explored? What concerns do you have for the future of the industry? What questions do you have regarding a current project or issue that is presenting some challenges?
Dr. Mahoney and Professor Fried both have diverse experiences within the industry over the past 20+ years and serve as co-editors of the column. As appropriate, one or both of the editors may prepare the response and will seek consultation with industry professionals as needed. On other occasions, the editors will seek responses from IAVM members, including faculty members and selected industry professionals who also teach.
