VISA USA in Foster City

Friday  9/16 from 8:30 AM to  Noon

" Bridging the Gap Between IT and Facilities"

Members and Friends of the Critical Facilities Round Table,

Please accept this invitation to join us for our next quarterly meeting on Friday, September 16th at 8:30 AM at VISA USA in Foster City.  This event is made available to all critical facilities owners and operators at no cost for membership or attendance.   

Many thanks to VISA's Karen Schacht for providing the refreshments, the planning, and the facilities that have made this event possible. 

We will hear from one of our very own CFRT members about how their management addressed the issues that come between all of our IT and Facilities organizations, and we hope to see a presentation that will open your eyes to hands on assessments and solutions for our technical, organizational, and operational challenges.    

The presentation will be followed by a round table discussion about what issues we are facing today, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and share information with one another.
