Local Facilities Manager's Connection (LFMC) met for the month of November at Peace Health Riverbend Annex in Springfield, Oregon to discuss Leasing Tips and Traps for Facilities Professionals (meeting itinerary) . Our discussion was led by LFMC member Tamara Miller who is System Manager for Property Management and she oversees the team that manages all non hospital properties in Oregon, Washington and Alaska. Tamara provided a handout and brief presentation to LFMC discussing her experience with lease negotiations, clarifying expectations for all parties in a contract, financial considerations in an agreement and security when sharing a space with tenants. Following is a recap in tweets from the November 17, 2016 meeting which covered leasing, tenant spaces, contract negotiation and a whole host of topics relevant to facilities, maintenance and risk professionals.
