Dear Members:

I hope your 2016 is off to a great start. I would like to announce the upcoming IFMA NYC programming and special events calendar.
On Monday, December 7, 2015 we held the Holiday Party at Celsius in Bryant Park where guests celebrated the season, networked, participated in the raffle and donated to the Fraternite Notre Dame toy drive.  On Thursday, December 17, 2015 we held a New Member Breakfast where our executive board and committee chairs welcomed our chapter’s new members. On Thursday, January 28, 2016 we held our Annual Awards for Excellence Dinner at the Pierre Hotel where guests celebrated IFMA NYC members and their companies for their outstanding accomplishments over the past year with the annual presentation of the Awards for Excellence. To view the year’s winners click here.
We have partnered with the FSDA for an FDNY Active Shooter Presentation on Tuesday, March 1, 2016. Please check our website and mobile app for a full event schedule. We would love to hear what types of future IFMA NYC educational programs and panel discussions you want to attend – email us your feedback at!
Thank you to all of our sponsors and members for your involvement and continued dedication to our chapter. Your commitment allows this organization to continue to thrive and lead the industry in Facility Management in the New York Metropolitan Area.
