Hello world

Michael Coleman

I work for BOMI International, the independent institute for property and
facility management education. During the past 17 years here, I have pushed
forward several initiatives. One of those was to execute readability studies
to ensure our courses are written at a reading level that promotes learning.
Another was to infuse sustainability concepts into our designation courses.
This ultimately enabled us to get most of our courses approved for the
USGBC's LEED-AP credential maintenance program.

My current position with BOMI International is Education Program Manager. Previous
positions were Designation Manager, eLearning Manager, Online Editor, Managing Editor (interim), Project Editor, Copyeditor, and Production Coordinator. That's a lot of jobs
for one person in one organization, and I love it. I have been allowed to
grow and reinvent myself constantly. A good friend recently showed me the
quote "Change is either a force to be feared, or an opportunity to be seized.
The choice is ours." For me, there is no choice.
