4 Facilities help maximize your organization’s mission
Your management of your facilities is as mission-focused as the rest of your organization. Customer-focused. How do you want your customers to feel when they visit your facility? How does the facility support and promote your mission and programs? How might it detract from your mission?

6 Strategic Facility Plan
Strategic Facility Plan is a two-to-five year plan that sets goals based on the organization's strategic objectives. These goals determine short-term plans and help to prioritize and budget annual facility projects

7 Facility management basics
What does a facility manager do? What is the difference between a janitor and a maintenance person? What is the CEO’s role? What is the Board’s role?

8 Assessing the facility
How do we use the facility now? How is it working for us? What are we worried about related to this facility? What percentage of our annual budget do we spend on the facility? If we could change something about the facility what would it be? If we were building a facility from scratch, what would be the elements we would include? What will the organization be doing five years from now?

9 Maintenance Fixing what is broken
Ensuring that repair is lasting, rather than a band-aid Must be a notification of the outcome of that repair

10 Preventative Maintenance
Preventative maintenance refers to regularly scheduled activities that prevent premature failure or maximize or extend the useful life of a facility and/or its components. It involves a program of inspection, servicing, testing and replacement of systems and components that is cost effective throughout the life of the facility.

The Americans with Disabilities Act gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, State and local government services, and telecommunications. .
