Since 2009, IFMA Atlanta has had a very successful partnership with a quarterly real estate magazine called OC Atlanta (previously called “Office & Commercial Atlanta”). In exchange for providing two articles per issue, the magazine sends a complimentary copy to all chapter members. PDF copies of the magazine can be downloaded at http://www.ocatlanta.com
This is a great opportunity for our members to raise their profile by writing articles that get seen by a wide range of Real Estate and Facilities professionals. The authors chosen by the chapter get a chance to write a bio which promotes their professional achievements, and lets the community know who they are. The articles are also informative and can highlight things that IFMA Atlanta is doing or has done. An example of the biographies published can be found here. The articles published in the Summer, 2012 issue can be found here.
