Dear Members, 

It’s hard to believe we’ve already entered the month of April. Last month, you shared some activities Facility Managers performed during Earth Hour (March 25).  Later this month (April 22), we will celebrate Earth Day. Please consider sharing your activities with us so we may share best practices and how you drive a culture of sustainability in a future newsletter with your respective colleagues.  I look forward to hearing your Earth Day stories. 

IFMA's Facility Fusion 2017 will be hosted by Cesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada Tuesday, April 4-Thursday, April 6, where chapter leaders and members will come together to synthesizes global, local, individual and industry-specific FM focus areas. The April Members Only Networking Breakfast will be held at Interface on Thursday, April 13 from 8:15 AM – 9:45 AM. 

The March Members Only Networking Breakfast was held at Avison Young on Thursday, March 9 from 8:15 AM - 9:45 AM. The ‘Tips to Get Notices in the Competitive Job Market’ event was hosted by WB Wood on Thursday, March 16 and featured a presentation by Craig Robinson, Manager of FM and Property Management Recruitment at Hays, on recruitment trends within the FM industry and tips to help boost your chances on that next career move. On March 23, the ‘Facility Manager Toolbox – A How to on Thriving in Today’s Professional Environment’ event was held at FEDCAP from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM. We received some valuable feedback from this FM only event to improve networking opportunities and formats for learning for our membership.   

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 or tweet at us @IFMANYC!
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.
