2015 FIMS Annual Comprehensive Training

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a three day FIMS Annual Comprehensive Training on May 5-7, 2015 at the Argonne National Lab in the TCS Conference Center. 
This event serves to replace our previous FIMS workshops.  It will include content that we normally provide at our FIMS workshops but we will also provide FIMS validation training on the latest FY15 guidance and Real Estate breakout sessions.  This training is considered to be a very critical educational and networking opportunity for Federal and Contractor personnel within the FIMS and Real Estate communities.  We cannot emphasize enough that attendance at this training is very important for the management and operation of the FIMS corporate system and will play a key role in the continued success of the FIMS and Real Estate programs.
We are in the process of developing a agenda based on a list of topics that we have formulated to date.  Anyone with suggestions for additional topics can contact Mark Gordy (mark.gordy@hq.doe.gov) or Gayle Smith (gayle.smith@hq.doe.gov).  This year's training will end with a question and answer session open to any topic related to real estate and facilities and infrastructure, even topics not covered in the training agenda.  To better prepare for your questions, we ask that you submit them through this Web link by April 28, 2015.  We thank you in advance for your submission. 
Since we are conducting this training at the Argonne National Lab, attendees are free to make their hotel reservations at a place of their choosing.  No rooms have been reserved at any hotel for this event.  Provided below are some suggested hotels that are close to the Argonne National Lab.  A Google search will provide a complete hotel listing for this area.
