FMA membership increases by 53 percent

06 May 2011

A 53 percent increase in membership numbers was announced by the FMA at its AGM this week. It was also announced that FMA Chief Executive, Chris Hoar, would continue in his current role for another two years.

The AGM, sponsored by BaxterStorey, was held earlier this week at the BIS Conference Centre in Central London. In addition to reporting a record growth in member numbers Chris Hore reported on a number of new initiatives planned for the next 12 months. These included an expansion of the Member Training Endorsement programme. MITIE and HSS Hire have already signed up to the endorsement programme and a number of other organisations are expected to conform their involvement shortly. 
FMA Limited Chairman, Richard Sykes, reported a revenue growth of around 60 percent to the AGM. He explained that the extra profit this has generated would be used to give more resource for FMA members. Among the plans are increased Communication and PR activity to promote the FMA as the voice of the facilities management industry to the widest possible audience. A number of Expert Panels are to be set up to help and advise members on specific FM issues. 
The FMA will be at four exhibitions in 2011, including The Facilities Show in May at the NEC and the TWM exhibition in October. The number in the FMA Linkedin Group is now over 2,000, and this is anticipated to grow throughout 2011. The FMA's close assocation with the CBI will continue.
Other FMA plans for 2011 include a planned expansion into the regions and the setting up of a 'Distance Learning' facility for FMA members. Full details on this are expected to be announced shortly.
