Message from the President

Dear Members,

Happy New Year! The New York City Chapter of IFMA is off to a great start in 2014 with a full and exciting schedule of events and opportunities. I encourage you to check the events calendar regularly to stay abreast of Chapter events including networking events, educational programs and facility tours.

You may have noticed a change to the Chapter logo on our website, social media and email blasts. The new logo is a result of a year-long project to unify and update the IFMA brand internationally (throughout the world?), and was presented to all the Chapters at World Workplace in October.

Our biggest event of the year, our Annual Awards for Excellence Dinner is only a few weeks away and final planning is in full swing. We expect this event to be a great success and hope you’ll join us to celebrate the accomplishments of the members you nominated!

Last month, almost 200 members gathered at our annual Holiday Party at B. Smith’s. Everyone enjoyed great food, music and conversation, and we collected more than 60 toys and over $1,000 as part of our toy drive to support Fraternite Notre Dame. Make sure to check out the expanded article with all the photos on our website.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Chapter members for their participation and support in 2013 and look forward to our Chapter’s continued growth and increased prominence as the premier organization for Facility Managers and Professionals in the New York City area for the coming year.

Gary Anzalone

IFMA 2013 Holiday Party and IFMA Cares Toy Drive Update

The Chapter is pleased to announce that over 180 of its members and guests brought approximately 60 toys and donated over $1,000 for the IFMA Cares toy drive at the holiday party on Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at B. Smith’s New York City.

The IFMA Cares committee was able to purchase an additional 140 toys, totaling around 200 toys for the annual Fraternite Notre Dame toy drive. The committee members helped distribute the toys to the children and families at the Fraternite Notre Dame’s Mary of Nazareth soup kitchen in East Harlem on Friday, December 20, 2013. Families lined up around the block to participate in the joyous event that provided over 1,000 toys to local children.

For more photos from the holiday party and the toy drive distribution, visit our website.
