The Building Managers Seminar brings together both professionals and students working within facilities management to develop skills and learn from one another.

Professionals will have the opportunity to share best practices for building manager training and gain additional skills around student supervision and engagement. Students who work in union operations or serve as building managers will further develop their skill set to perform tasks in their current role on campus and serve them as leaders in the future.

See the details below for more information about the multi-day virtual event taking place September 22–23. Sessions are planned on leadership, inclusive spaces, customer service, assessing learning, mentorship and sponsorship, training programs, emergency management, and peer supervision.
