Letter from the President

Dear Members:

The summer is finally here and the New York City Chapter of IFMA is pressing forward with a host of new events and great opportunities to get more involved with our Chapter. Be sure to check our website or download our app for new updates, to register for coming programs and to connect with fellow Chapter members.

We are continually striving to develop new and creative programming to further engage both our professional and associate membership. Our next monthly members-only networking breakfast will be held in July at a new location, Global Industries Showroom. In the meantime, I encourage you to attend our joint program with CoreNet Global NYC on June 24, 2014 where we will have a panel discussion on the future of the New York energy grid.

Our Chapter is currently conducting Board Elections until Friday June 20, 2014. I encourage you to take a moment to vote on our website. These Officers are responsible for managing and directing the business of the Chapter and your vote is important.

Our annual Sponsorship drive is close to wrapping up for the year, and I would like to encourage anyone who is interested in sponsorship to contact us. More information is available on the Chapter website.

As always, I would like to extend my most sincere gratitude to our members for your relentless enthusiasm toward our goal of maintaining IFMA New York City Chapter as the premier organization for Facility Managers and Professionals in the New York Metropolitan Area.

Gary Anzalone

Committee Highlights


The July networking breakfast will be held on Thursday, July 10 at a new location: GLOBAL industries showroom!

We will also be hosting a drive to benefit Dress for Success, a nonprofit that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Just bring your ready-to-wear and gently used women’s professional clothing/accessories to the event for collection. Monetary donations also welcomed!

IFMA Foundation Fundraiser

The IFMA NYC chapter programs committee is planning a fundraising event for the IFMA Foundation on Thursday, August 14 which includes a silent auction. If you’re interested in donating to the silent auction please contact Daniel Castner or J. Strong.

Members and guests will have the opportunity to hear from experts as they describe their energy efficiency best practices.

Join CoreNet NYC and IFMA NYC to learn about Con Ed’s eye popping incentives and discover how energy efficiency fits into the future of the New York grid.

IFMA NYC Annual Golf Outing

IFMA NYC Awards for Excellence

The committee has added a new category for this year to celebrate Workplace Innovation. This award will be given to an End-User Company for developing and implementing an innovative workplace concept that has had a major impact for their firm. This award will recognize a company's insight and ability to foster transformational change. An example might be a company that has adapted an unconventional workplace culture that has helped them stay ahead of the curve and impacted the happiness and productivity of their employees. The company does NOT have to be an IFMA NYC member. Click here to make your nominations today!
