What’s Involved?

As a host, aside from allowing us to hold the meeting at your headquarters, we ask you to lead the discussion and keep the conversation moving as close to the agenda as possible. In addition, we ask the host to do a 10-15 minute presentation about your company’s facilities management challenges and solutions in the beginning of the meeting as a way to jumpstart the day. PRSM staff will also handle the logistics and marketing aspect for the meeting.  A PRSM representative will also be available to attend your meeting.


For questions or additional information on the submission and selection process, please contact the Membership Team via e-mail at or by phone at 972-231-9810.
