Facility Managers Guild

The Facility Managers Guild is SEON’s second professional networking group. Its aim is to assist facility managers in becoming more proficient in all aspects of energy management. Opportunities to share best practices and project outcomes, engage in problem solving, connect to additional resources, and participate in continuing education is the benefit of our collaboration. We know from experience that having access to a local networking group willing to support and learn from one another is an important regional asset with considerable financial returns to the organization.

Who can participate

Any facility manager, technician, or associate working in a non-profit, public, or private enterprise in the tri-state region who wants to advance their knowledge and skills in sustainable energy management.
