Dear Members:

New York City is in full bloom and our Chapter is thrilled to be holding many exciting spring events. Please visit our website and mobile app for a full schedule of upcoming programming.

April was a busy month for our Chapter. On Monday, April 27, prospective IFMA members had a rare opportunity to see behind-the-scenes of the United Nations, hosted by Mark Camera, DSS Project Manager, CMP Security Section. The exclusive tour included insight into how the United Nations stays on the cutting edge of technology while maintaining the original look and feel of the space. On Tuesday, April 28, the Y.E.L.P. (Young Emerging Leaders and Professionals) Committee held their first Mentorship Program Information Session, where they outlined and discussed the newly launched program with prospective mentors and mentees

The May calendar is full of opportunities for IFMA members. On Wednesday, May 20, we are hosting an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Citi Field. After the tour, attendees will gather in a luxury suite to watch the Mets play the St. Louis Cardinals. The second annual St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Happy Hour Fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, May 27 at Public House. Please visit our event calendar for more information and to sign up for these events.

As always, thank you to our dedicated and talented members for their ongoing efforts in maintaining IFMA New York City Chapter’s reputation as the premier organization for Facility Managers and Professionals in the New York Metropolitan Area.
