FMJ-“Ask the Expert” article due for March/April 2023 publication

Date(s) - 01/23/2023

FMCC members have been invited to share their knowledge through submissions of articles and specifically, Ask The Experts, in the FMJ.  This is an opportunity for members to highlight their expertise to the broader FM community.  The Ask the Experts topics generally follow the theme of FMJ for that specific publication.  However, as the topics of FM are so broad and many, the FMJ does not have a themed issue for every topic. The FMCC community is welcome to submit an article on any topic at any time. For example, if you consult in the area of Business Continuity Planning, FMJ would welcome an article at any time.  Or you may include sustainability in your Business Continuity Planning.

Ask the Experts requires between 300 – 500 words.  This is less than a page so will not be time consuming. Please give consideration to a submission.  These can be sent along with a short bio to Kathleen Lausman at  Please advise prior to the deadline that it is your intent to submit.
