FMCC Appoints Regional Directors
Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018
President Teena Shouse and the FMCC Officers are pleased to announce newly appointed members to serve as Regional Directors, functioning at the board level. They will concentrate on FM consultant networking and capabilities best realized in the business circumstances and cultures of their regions. FMCC will support initiatives and collaborations facilitated by the Regional Directors toward the overall goals and objectives of the Council.
These are one year renewable appointments, September to September. The first to be appointed appear below with the regions where they are active. Individually and together they reflect an energetic presence of FMCC in their regions, often in company with other local and regional FM organizations.
|Ondrej Strup||Central & Eastern Europe|
|Mohamed El Agroudy||Middle East|
|Ricardo Crepaldi||South America|
|Olumide Aina||Sub Saharan Africa|
About the regions shown in the table above, surely Australasia, Canada, Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East, South America, and Sub Saharan Africa do not blanket the globe. Geography, presence of FMCC members and interests, and being able to respond effectively in leading a new initiative suggested the six regions shown. Should they be more, or fewer, or different? Answers will come as this strategic initiative evolves. Member ideas, concerns, opportunities, and work already underway may focus well in a region already shown, or may be so different in places, cultures, markets, networks, or quantities of projects and programs to warrant a separate region. Time, effort, and experience will tell. Please stay in touch.
Members interested in volunteering in their region should contact the Director or FMCC.
Please recognize and support the Regional Directors. We hope that this will be an enterprising year for them, for you, and for FMCC.
