Atlanta Membership Committee
The membership committee’s goal is to be the ambassadors for IFMA Atlanta. We strive to educate new and prospective members about the benefits of IFMA Atlanta and why they should join. Our commitment is to make all guests feel welcome and engaged. The committee is also responsible for the annual membership directory and the annual membership drive.

New Member Orientations
New and prospective member orientations are held 2 times a year. These 2 hour events are a great opportunity to meet the current executive board of IFMA Atlanta. We explain our responsibilities and how their active participation will benefit them personally and professionally. There is a question session focused on helping the new members get the most out of our organization. Please contact Todd Shannon for more information about the Membership Committee.
It is our pleasure to introduce you to IFMA Atlanta’s new Mentor/Mentee Program. This program is designed to encourage the active participation of new and existing Professional and Associate Members of IFMA Atlanta. We want to pair an active, Professional Member (Mentor) with a new or inactive Professional Member (Mentee), likewise the Associate Members.
As the active Mentor, you will be given a name and phone number of another Professional/Associate Member. The Mentor will invite the Mentee to accompany them to an upcoming IFMA educational or social event that the Mentor was already planning to attend. The Mentor will help the new or existing member to acclimate to our Chapter’s offerings and introduce them to other IFMA members. The Mentor and Mentee will both gain a new friend in the profession, who they can share professional knowledge, challenges and solutions with.
Time Commitment Suggested: One IFMA event per month and any additional time spent is discretionary to the pair. However, the pairs are encouraged to meet outside of IFMA.
The goal of the Mentor/Mentee program is to foster the personal and professional growth of IFMA Atlanta Members.
