Welcome to the San Francisco Chapter of IFMA! You’ve not only found an organization dedicated to serving the needs of Facility Professionals worldwide, you’ve found a Chapter dedicated to meeting that goal WHILE doing so with great camaraderie and fun.

Your membership with IFMA provides many benefits to you and your company:

Local networking with professional peers

IFMA chapters add special value to your membership experience. A unique forum for FM professionals to network locally with their peers, chapters provide many avenues for professional and personal development through monthly meetings, educational courses, brown bags, social functions and facility tours.

Chapter-specific member resources

In addition to information and tools available through your IFMA membership, chapters offer resources specific to your local interests. Our chapter maintains its own Web site, our own blog, local membership directories, and employment referral assistance. Chapter resources are important to your career growth, industry knowledge and networking.

Best practice sharing with local peers

Through chapter Web sites, meetings and events, you have the opportunity to talk with peers about workplace challenges and pose industry-related questions, receiving timely answers. Our chapter brings IFMA resources directly to you, making your membership experience more personal.

Local professional development programs

The San Francisco Chapter sponsors IFMA educational seminars, offers round table and panel discussions, and presents “hot topic” speakers to members. We also organize certification study groups designed for members planning to take IFMA’s CFM exam. Peer support and knowledge sharing contribute to enhancing your professional development.

Leadership opportunities

Chapter committees and leadership positions allow members to contribute in areas such as program and event planning, marketing, Web development, member recruitment, and community outreach. As a source of personal development, participation as a chapter leader or organizer is highly rewarding. Chapter involvement is a source of pride, accomplishment and honor.

Monthly Programs

Monthly chapter programs (3rd Thursday of each month) include networking opportunities and educational opportunities.
