   Facilities Management Workshop

“The mix of being able to get some continuing education, interact with other government folks and the private sector, and do so in formal, open and social settings: I know of very few (maybe no) other venues where you can get cross discipline interactions across the private and public sector in a variety of settings.
No one else does this.”

–Lawrence Schorr, 787th Civil Engineer Squadron, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J.
