Ivy Tech and City Launch Efficient Facilities Workshop

Workshop for facility managers and property owners to share efficiency and cost-saving practices

Ivy Tech Community College-Bloomington, in partnership with the City of Bloomington, is hosting an Efficient Facilities workshop on Wednesday, June 5, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at City Hall. The purpose of the event is to provide facility managers with an opportunity to share energy, water, waste efficiency, and cost-saving practices, and identify knowledge sharing and training options.

“Ivy Tech-Bloomington’s Corporate College hopes to gain feedback from workshop attendees about what kind of certifications and training would be useful to Bloomington’s facility management workforce, as well as individual property owners,” said Ivy Tech-Bloomington Chancellor John Whikehart. “Corporate College would then develop customized training solutions.”

“At the City we’ve implemented cost- and energy-saving measures across all of our facilities,” Mayor Mark Kruzan said. “This network is an opportunity for us to share what we’ve learned and receive suggestions and feedback from our community peers.”

Reservations are required.  There is a nominal fee of $10 to cover the cost of the lunch that will be provided.  RSVP by June 3 to Jacqui Bauer by phone (812.349.3418), email (bauerj@bloomington.in.gov) or online (http://www.ivytech.edu/bloomington/corporate-college/).
