Schleicher Moderates IFMA Symposium in LA

Professor David Schleicher was a participant in the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) one-day symposium for facility managers held in Los Angeles on April 1. 

The event, titled "Reth!nk the City," looked at the evolving role cities play in human culture and how that impacts the role of facility management. 

Schleicher moderated a discussion that included Mayor Sam Sullivan, founder and CEO of Global Civic Policy Society and a member of the Order of Canada, his nation's highest civilian award, and Jeff Speck, a city planner, urban designer, and professional consultant who is internationally recognized for his work in smart growth and sustainable design. Sullivan served as mayor of Vancouver from 2006–09.
