Monthly Meetings

Meeting Information

Mark your Calendars and join us at the IFMA monthly meetings. Most meetings are scheduled for the second Wednesday of the month.  To attend the meetings please RSVP at Cvent.

The IFMA monthly meetings are a great way to learn best practices in facilities management, stay informed on local events, and network with other IFMA members.

Most meetings begin at 11:30 with networking followed by lunch and an innovative learning period. The learning period could be a panel of guests discussing a topic from multiple points of view, a speaker with an invigorating message, or a tour of a local facility.

Our goal is to provide insightful, interesting, and relevant programs that address the IFMA Core Competencies.  We strive to reflect both our chapter’s local needs and interests as well as address new developments in global facilities management.

IFMA Core Competencies:

Communication Communication plans and processes for both internal and external stakeholders
Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity Emergency and risk management plans and procedures
Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability Sustainable management of built and natural environments
