Regular lunch and breakfast seminars, as well as half and full-day workshops, are run by FMA state branches throughout the year. These informative events are presented by expert speakers on topics of interest while providing a local focus on important issues affecting the industry. They offer timely information and learnings FMs can apply in their facility, case studies, Q&As and time for making new contacts and networking.
Getting together with your colleagues at FMA golf days, a site visit or while celebrating major events such as Melbourne Cup, or the first whistle of the season, provide great opportunities to connect with other industry professionals, generate business leads and catch up on industry news in relaxed and fun surroundings.
