VFA User Forum: Facilities Leadership

September 5, 2013

On September 18-19th the VFA User Forum takes place at the Fairmont Empress in Victoria, British Columbia. The event features excellent learning and networking opportunities for facilities leaders, with exciting customer speakers, thought-provoking roundtables, and the opportunity to hear directly from VFA executives.

Take a look at the updated agenda, and get excited! If you haven’t registered yet, it’s not too late.

Customer Speakers at the VFA User Forum

We have a stellar line-up of customer speakers this year. Sharing their knowledge with us are Marcel Gingras, P.Eng, and Lt Cl. (Ret) Jon Burbee from Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt, Darryl Boyce from Carleton University, and Pete Jansen from the City of Richmond. Topics range from leadership in facilities capital planning to managing the facility portfolio to building a foundation for facilities sustainment. All sessions are bound to be enlightening, so try to attend as many as possible. If you can’t, keep an eye on the blog because we’ll be posting video clips from the conference afterwards.

Topical RoundTables at the VFA User Forum

In addition to exciting speakers, we will also have topical roundtables. Currently, the lineup is as follows:

1. Energy/Sustainability

2. Capital Spend Management

3. Site Linear

4. Risk

5. Holistic Views into Facility Data

Changes are always possible, so make sure to check the latest agenda; you can also follow VFA on Twitter to track updates for this event (and all things VFA).



While we are running the event, you can be sure that VFA will also be participating. Many VFA leaders will be speaking – don’t miss Jim Streeter’s talk about trends in facilities capital planning – as well as leading roundtable discussions and presenting demonstrations of VFA’s facilities capital planning and management solutions.
