All of our event information, registration, calendars and general chapter information can be found on our mobile app and website.

On January 29, 2015 members and friends of IFMA NYC gathered at The Pierre Hotel for the annual IFMA NYC Awards for Excellence Dinner. I want to congratulate all the nominees and those who won for their hard work and dedication within the industry and to our chapter. Thank you to all who contributed to this events incredible success and we are already looking forward to next year’s awards. Nominations for the 2015 awards are now open and can be submitted via the Awards for Excellence Nomination Page on our website.

I’d also like to thank you for your continued dedication in maintaining our status as the premier organization for Facility Managers and professionals in the NYC area. We look forward to continued success for this chapter and its members this year.
