IFMA’s Atlanta chapter recently held its annual awards luncheon, where members were recognized for furthering both Facility Management and the chapter.
One of these was the Harry L. Ludwig, III Community Services Award. It is presented to a Chapter volunteer for outstanding contributions to our community services program partners and to the committee. He/she represents IFMA Atlanta in giving back to the community that which we are about: Facility Management expertise, skill, dedication and contributions. He or she serves as a role model for the Chapter serving our community partners tirelessly, producing positive change and results; clearly going above and beyond the call of duty.
The winner of this year’s award is Barbara Miller. Barbara has been a member of the Community Services Committee for many years now. She has taken charge as a co-leader for the Elaine Clark Center for Exceptional Children for the second year in a row. She was instrumental in coordinating in kind services and products for their last two renovation projects, including soliciting help from her own company, Akzel Nobel for paint products. She has over seen the necessary repairs and project management skills that have been donated to this nonprofit. She has engaged her own company in volunteering at the site and sought donated materials to keep operating costs to a minimum.
Barbara spent many hours assisting them with this process and helping them organize volunteers.
She has been a regular contributor not only to her team partner, ECC but also to our other partners when the need arises. Barbara has supported our non-profit lunch and learns and the annual Facility Summit. She can always be counted on to be there for Volunteer Days.
She regularly attends monthly luncheons and other Chapter functions. She is true example of a quality member.
