In 1984, ten local facility management professionals joined forces to found IFMA Boston with the hope to bring together individuals from the built environment community to foster communication and learning. Nearly 30 years later, this mission remains the same. IFMA Boston is committed to supporting the facility management community and its professionals through career development, advocacy, and networking.
Today our chapter numbers more than 700 members, making it the second largest chapter in the world. Long recognized as one of the most active and progressive Chapters, the Boston Chapter was honored as the 2001 International Chapter of the Year, and was again recognized with this honor in 2007. The chapter hosts nearly 50 events a year including continuing education, programs and tours, panel discussions, industry specific programming and special events.
Established in 1980, the International Facilities Management Association is a non-profit, incorporated association dedicated to serving the facility management profession. IFMA strives to enhance the recognition and integrity of the profession, while providing facility professionals with the services and information they need to advance their careers. The International organization provides education, research, publications, events, and alliances with other related associations and organizations.
So if you are looking to meet facility management professionals, network with colleagues, gain certification, better understand facility best practices and/or want to be part of a great community then you have come to the right place.
