Shawn J Minyon's insight:

Security of the sports facility is a top concern as a facility manager.  From large scale stadiums to local town recreation centers ensuring the safety of the spectators to the employees it is paramount that they are safe.  Giving the customers the feeling they are safe is also very important to having them come back.  In todays society terrorism is a threat around the world.  Large crowds are a prime target for terrorists and vigilant good security measures must be in place at all times.  Even on a smaller scale large crowds bring in petty thief's such as pick pockets or people selling illegal goods.  Even giving people the feeling that their vehicles are protected from theft or being broke into can help ease the worries of the fans and employees.  S.A.F.E. is one example of a security service that can aid in increasing security measures.  There are many security agencies out there that can provide the same services to meet specific needs of a particular facility.  This is an important part of managing a facility so don't underplay or under estimate the critical need for good security.

Keeping up with the Americans with Disabilities Act – what you don’t know can cost you!

Keeping up with the Americans with Disabilities Act – what you don’t know can cost you! | Sports Facility Management 4086972 | Scoop.it
If you’re an owner or occupier of a large commercial real estate...
Shawn J Minyon's insight:

Change is always happening in the sports world.  The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is one of those things that changes periodically.  Being abreast of changes allows Sports Facility managers to adjust and ensure that they stay in accordance with the regulations of the ADA.  Having quarterly ADA training would push for tracking any changes and being able to brief and educate the facility staff on any changes.  This would force the ADA facility representative to keep up to date on changes that may have been made.  When training is done annually it could lead to some complacency because of other job requirements that may be of importance in the moment.  This article gives some insight of the importance of staying current and what ramifications can be if a facility management teams falls behind.

WA Football Commission pushing to run Burswood stadium and other venues.
Shawn J Minyon's insight:

The bid by Footy to run stadiums could increase revenue by utilizing the stadium for many different venues.  According to the article football would still play a vital role but adding concerts and other venues when football is not being played could benefit the city and surrounding businesses by having less dead (no event) time use of the stadium.
