CJE Owners’ Advisory Council (OAC)

You have questions. The Owners’ Advisory Council has answers!

  • Would you like to collaborate with a third party colleague to discuss JOC issues or ideas?
  • Do you want an objective source to discuss your JOC program? 
  • Are you making JOC process, program or procurement decisions? 
  • Do you need best practices for your program from a cohort’s viewpoint?
  • Are you interested in sharing information and lessons learned with other owners?

These questions summarize the value of the Owners’ Advisory Council (OAC).  Many owner members expressed that they enjoy collaborating with other owners to help expedite their JOC programs.  As a result, the Council was formed.  Through the OAC, owners can learn how their colleagues are using their JOC program to strengthen their FM position in the market.  Members can ask one of our Owners’ Advisory Council members about their experience and get tips for success.  The Council is composed of owners, and serve as an independent resource to owners only.  The OAC is a council of facility and infrastructure resource experts.

Please contact the OAC Chair, Bettie Simpson-Weeks at bettie@jocexcellence.org.  She is a professional advisory board strategist and facilitator with more than 30 years of experience.  Having run a university JOC program for many years, she understands owners want to talk to owners in confidence.  She can provide you with direct contact information for a colleague on the Owners’ Advisory Council.  Your consultation will be treated with complete privacy. 

If you have interest in serving on the Council, please contact us at info@jocexcellence.org for more information. Council members serve two-year minimum terms via appointment.
