President’s Message

First, let me say it is an honor and a privilege to serve as IFMA Atlanta President this year and I am excited at the opportunities and goals we have set as an Executive team! As we reflect on a successful year, we must also embrace the future with a clear vision and goal for our Chapter which is to create the best professional organization that provides our Members and Business Partners with the resources to grow their network, knowledge, value, and skills as Facility Management professionals.

I want to encourage all of you to lock arms and join us on this journey as we set our sights on providing more events, educational courses, networking opportunities and growth for our members. Our success as a chapter has been highlighted with many International Presidents, the only chapter worldwide to offer CEU credits, IFMA Fellows and contributors to literature, programs and policies that span decades, but I believe we can achieve even more success and continue leading the industry as a Chapter! I also want to encourage all of you to reach out, get involved, offer suggestions, join a committee, and help our team pursue innovation and excellence this year that will ignite everyone’s commitment to our goals at IFMA Atlanta.

“When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too” – Paulo Coelho
