Ashley Rogers will take up the newly created role of Chair of Members’ Council at the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) from 12 July, serving a two-year term.
Rogers was elected to the new position during the March 2012 Council meeting. Bernard Crouch, Chair of the London Region, was voted in as deputy.
Rogers is a Director at property services firm Eddisons. He has served on the BIFM Board since July 2011 and is a former committee member and Chair of the BIFM Midlands Region. Speaking about his election, he said: “I am honoured to have been voted in to this new key role and am really looking forward to the challenge. It is a great time to be involved with BIFM; there are lots of exciting initiatives happening.”
The role of Members’ Council is to influence the long-term direction of the Institute and its mission. Its membership represents the major areas of activity and influence within the Institute.
In previous years, the BIFM Chair was also Chair of Members’ Council, but at the 2011 AGM BIFM members voted to split these roles.
