Dear Members:

Spring is around the corner in New York City and our Chapter is off to a great start with several exciting programs scheduled over the next few months. I encourage you to check our website and mobile app for a full schedule of upcoming opportunities.

February was a busy month for the Chapter with a full schedule of events. On February 2, 2015 the member services committee hosted potential members of IFMA NYC for a behind the scenes tour of SiriusXM lead by Director of Facilities and Office Services, Stuart Goldberg. On February 19, 2015 our emerging leaders hosted a Facility Management themed trivia night and on February 26, 2015 our Chapter celebrated its newest members at a Cocktail Party at Ted Moudis Associates.

Our board members and committee chairs gathered for their annual chapter retreat on February 28, 2015 which generated many new ideas and initiatives to grow the organization. We look forward to implementing the initiatives over the course of the coming year.

I would like to again express my sincere gratitude for the ongoing efforts of our dedicated and talented members in maintaining IFMA New York City Chapter’s reputation as the premier organization for Facility Managers and Professionals in the New York Metropolitan Area.

Gary Anzalone
