Advocacy Portfolio Group

The Advocacy group provides a forum for FMs to connect at an industry level and engage in discussions and development of actions related to the establishment and execution of the Association’s advocacy agenda.

It has played a crucial role in establishing five key areas that support and progress ongoing industry advocacy by the Association. These are:

  1. Position papers
  2. Role of facilities manager
  3. Sustainable facilities management
  4. Compliance and regulation
  5. Building information (BIM)

The Advocacy Group is providing a direct connection between industry practice and issue based advocacy on behalf of the industry.  This has laid a solid foundation for driving a broader industry agenda with government and other industry stakeholders that will ensure a greater impact on the future practice of facilities management. The year ahead will see work continue on the development of a range of new policy positions that will assist the organisation move towards its strategic goals: particularly raising the level of influence the Association has in representing the interests of the industry.

The Terms of Reference outline the objectives, responsibilities and operation of the Group.
