Connex Food & Beverage Council

The ConnexFM Communities ­­– including the All Member Community, the Multi-Site FM Community and each Council Community – are now closed and will be undergoing a complete overhaul and redesign in a different technology platform. In the meantime, we have created groups on LinkedIn to provide an online environment for our members.  We invite you to join us in one or more of the ConnexFM LinkedIn Groups.
