Ensure Mission – Lower Operating Expenses – Improve Facility Programs:

Tom Doyen, Director of Business Development for zumBrunnen, will present his program called Ensure Mission – Lower Operating Expenses – Improve Facility Programs on Thursday, August 30 from 3:00-4:30 pm. The educational session is designed for Executives and Board Members who are responsible for ensuring the mission of their communities.

Doyen will explain how long-term financial stability is critical to ensure the overall mission of the communities. The presentation will also explain why communities must be more than financially fit on paper; they must also be physically fit (and what that means in relation to financial stability). Doyen will explain why executives and boards need accurate, comprehensive reporting on the physical condition of their assets, how to identify the proper tools to maintain their communities while being as efficient and green as practical, and how to ensure they have the funds to act strategically when changes are necessary. This session provides the insight and strategy executives and boards need to preserve their physical assets.
