Within the FMN the sections of Management and organization, Health care, Building (maintenance) Management, Facility Purchase, Parkmanagement, and Starting Facility Managers, play an active part. These sections all contribute to the development of the professional field.

Eleven times a year FMN publishes its association journal “Facility Management Information” (FMI). This journal provides information about the FMN, its members and the branch. Members receive the FMN-E-zine, the e-mail newsletter, 22 times a year, so they are constantly informed about activities of the FMN and other relevant developments in FM. Once a year the FMN publishes a yearbook called the Almanac, which supports the network function by giving information on all aspects of FMN's activities and members.
