President's Message

January 2019

Each year bring new challenges to Facility Managers and this year is no exception. New rules and regulations, new codes and everyone trying to do more with less. Sound familiar?

IFMA Philadelphia is working to address all of these concerns and more. Our Program & Education Committee is coordinating programs that fit your needs and will expand your knowledge base at the same time, so make sure to review the weekly email blasts. Monthly programs consisting of facility tours, best practices and networking aim to keep you informed and allow networking with other FM Professionals as well as our sponsors and vendors.

Our Sponsorship Committee has rolled out a new program to meet everyone’s level of sponsorship activity. If you’re a golfer, check out our new Platinum Level Sponsorship – it includes a foursome for the annual golf outing. The golf outing is our main fundraiser for Scholarships. If you are a student or know a student working towards a career in Facility Management, please have them check out our scholarship information.

Our website has been updated with a new look thanks to the Communication Committee. They are also working hard to keep LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook updated so check us out to see what you missed if you could not make an event.

All of our committees can use volunteers to help. If you would like to lend a helping hand and build a network of knowledgeable professional please feel free to reach out to me or any committee chair. It’s a great way to get involved and meet fellow committee members.

I would love to hear from you and knowing how IFMA of Greater Philadelphia can support you and I hope to see you at one our upcoming events.

President, IFMA Greater Philadelphia Chapter
