Dear Members:

I hope you enjoyed the later months of summer. IFMA NYC is pleased to announce an exciting variety of programming for the next few months. Please check our website and mobile app for a full schedule of upcoming opportunities.

We have been kept busy with a number of educational, networking and charitable events for our members. In July, IFMA NYC held its Toolbox Luncheon at DORMA. Expert panelists from city and state environmental and governmental organizations were joined by moderator Amelia Janisz of EZBuildingsEHS, to give IFMA NYC members all the tools needed to remain on the cutting-edge of environmental, health and safety in their facilities. IFMA NYC also held the 2015 IFMA Foundation Fundraiser and Wine Tasting Social on Thursday, August 13 at Time, Inc. This important event benefits the IFMA Foundation which continues to support of Facility Management in higher education, including support for students, research and awareness. This year’s fundraiser featured casino games, raffle and silent auction Items, at-the-door prizes and a pop-up art store.

The coming months will be packed with exciting event opportunities as well. Please join us on Monday, September 28 at the Knollwood Country Club in Elmsford, New York for our Annual Golf Outing. This year’s outing will feature a beginner’s clinic, tennis tournament, raffles, prizes, trophies, tequila tasting, memorabilia auction, cigar rolling and great networking opportunities. Please visit our event calendar for more information on all these exciting events and networking opportunities.

Thank you to all of our members for your tireless dedication. Your support allows this organization to continue to thrive and lead the industry in Facility Management in the New York Metropolitan Area.
