A Thank You to Our Users
The annual VFA User Forum in Victoria, British Columbia is just a month away, but the agenda is already packed with motivating speakers, product demos and networking opportunities. Here at VFA, we are excited to explore product direction, share insight, and participate in interactive round tables about key topics in facilities capital planning and management. But most importantly, we look forward to the chance to personally connect with our users. We appreciate each and every relationship we have built over the years and thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to visit with the facility managers we work with throughout the year.
The event kicks off early on Thursday, September 19th in the Fairmont Empress with a welcome reception. Conference sessions will run all day Thursday and will include VFA speakers as well as sessions that put our users in the spotlight. Facility managers from organizations such as Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt and Carlton University will speak about their leadership in successful implementation of facilities capital planning and management programs. Topics under discussion will include trends in facilities capital planning, including taking a programmatic approach vs. one-off projects, harnessing mobility as a tool, moving beyond condition data to consider functional adequacy, energy, and factoring risk into the prioritization of projects.
We will also be awarding the VFA CapStar award and the Lifetime Achievement Award.
The VFA User Forum is all about our clients, and we can’t wait to see you there! For a closer look at the conference schedule, check out the VFA User Forum agenda.
