About Us

Facility management is a profession that encompasses multiple disciplines to ensure functionality of the built environment by integrating people, place, process and technology.

Founded in 1989, IFMA Central Ohio is a widely recognized international association for facility management professionals in Columbus, supporting over 110 professional members and over 90 associate members.

IFMA Central Ohio chapter plans a robust schedule of activities for members. This includes educational programs on timely topics, tours of the region’s most interesting and complex facilities, community service activities, and our annual sporting events. The facility tours and educational programs are geared towards providing facility managers with a better understanding of the current trends and technology that they can incorporate into their facility(s), while the community service activities and sporting events are more social and a great way to network with your fellow members.  


According to a recent survey of our members, IFMA Central Ohio is an organization that provides facility managers with the resources to network with other facility managers, which allows them the opportunity to share experiences and vendor recommendations. It’s also a place where facility managers can meet potential new vendors and to build a solid relationship before discussing any business needs.

As someone interested in IFMA Central Ohio, you are welcome to attend any of our events. While most of our events are free for members and guests, a handful (the annual golf outing and sporting events, as well as the annual State of the Union Luncheon) require a small registration fee.  You don’t need to be "invited" by someone to attend. We encourage anyone who finds our events relevant to join us!
