The IFMA NYC Sustainability Committee is hard at work on a list of valuable programs, roundtables and collaborative events for our members to increase awareness and understanding of the sustainable climate today.Join the IFMA Emerging Leaders Facility Management Mentorship Program
The upcoming event on Thursday, May 22 is a continuation of the committee's commitment to bringing awareness to our members regarding sustainability regulation issues they may face. The event will delve into the world of E-Recycling and the 2015 mandate of disposing of all electronic waste separate from the normal disposal stream. Panelists will be from the E-Recycling industry, municipal government and the consulting fields to educate and illuminate this upcoming regulatory change.
The committee also is involved in a collaborative event in late June revolving around Energy Efficiency Best Practices. A panel of corporate and institutional energy users will discuss their experiences with technologies and regulatory environments affecting their facilities today.
They have also been diligently recruiting new members to the committee and have introduced a series of quarterly roundtables for the committee members led by committee members that will enhance the value and time spent within the organization.
Lastly the upcoming series of webinars focusing on Local Law 87 and NYC's Greater Greener Building laws covering energy performance, retro-commissioning, audits and upgrades, sub-metering of commercial tenants and lighting retro-fits is well underway and scheduled to roll out in late fall 2015. We encourage all who would like to participate to the committee and make this a truly rewarding experience for all members of the IFMA NYC community.

The IFMA's New York City Emerging Leaders committee is piloting a Facility Management Mentorship program. This is a great opportunity for Facility Managers of all levels of experience to receive valuable one-on-one advising and professional guidance. Additionally, mentors can gain valuable leadership and communication skills, while giving back to the Facility Management community. This program is free of charge for IFMA members.
The recommendations for mentorship (as a mentor or protégé):
- Meetings over coffee or lunch
- Attending an educational session or conference proceeding together
- Attending an IFMA organized social or networking event together
- Attending a site visit on a project your mentor is working on
- Spending an afternoon shadowing your mentor in their workplace
