The Facility Management Association of Australia (FMA) is pleased to announce changes to its Board of Directors, including the election of Bryon Price as Chair of the FMA.

Mr Price said that he is looking forward to improving the industry’s capabilities, increasing its visibility, and growing the Association and the value it provides to members.
