2019 AFE Founders Day Reception

Thursday, May 16

The Berghoff Restaurant - Chicago

5pm - 7pm CDT


For more than a century, the Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE) has led the way in providing educational resources and professional tools to active and emerging building maintenance, facilities management and construction professionals around the globe.  The AFE Founders Day Reception, our premier annual networking event, not only celebrates that legacy but also provides an opportunity for our Members and guests to broaden their personal and professional networks plus explore new business opportunities.  In 2019, AFE will recognize an individual whose work in the FM space embodies the same spirit that inspired Harry S. Dennison and E. B. Freeman to plant the seeds that spurred the formation of the Plant Engineers Club in 1915, which eventually grew to become the American Institute of Plant Engineers (AIPE) and finally matured into AFE.  The evening will even include a special tour of The Berghoff's brewery.  So, join us in Chicago for this very special occasion.
