Public Announcements


Central Ohio Chapter of IFMA COVID-19

To: Central Ohio IFMA Members

As the COVID-19 virus continues to force us to make changes on how we do business it is the decision of the Central Ohio Chapter Board to postpone all events, programs and tours through the end of April. Since some of these are 3rd party events we are verifying to see if they are cancelling as well or changing their format to a webinar. As information is received, we will send out updates as quickly as possible. 

Through April, all board and committee meetings will continue through GoToMeetings and possibly longer depending on the virus. 

Please take care and we'll see you in May or June.

President, Central Ohio Chapter IFMA


The Pandemic Planning Process- How to Prepare Against the Coronavirus COVID-19

As you know, the IFMA Central Ohio Programs Committee has been diligently working towards finalizing the Bed Bugs and Pandemics program, which is currently scheduled for May 13th.

Unfortunately, given the situation unfolding regarding the Coronavirus COVID-19, we thought it would be prudent to have our Pandemics expert, Valerie Morris from Auburn Services, provide some information on Pandemic Planning prior to that program.

We've added some documents (which are more fully described below) on the Pandemic Planning process under the Downloadable Information section on the IFMA Central Ohio website.

  • Pandemic Influenza Continuity of Operations Annex Template- Federal Emergency Management Agency
  • Pandemic Planning: Building Effective Safety Teams- Presentation
  • Pandemic Planning Process: Building Effective Safety Teams- Worksheets


We hope that you find this information useful and we look forward to you attending the Bed Bugs and Pandemics program on Wednesday, May 13th from 11am-1pm at The Electrical Trades Center.

However, if you have any questions and would like to speak with Valerie Morris prior to the program, she can be reached at 614-383-7798 or [email protected]

Thank you and have a wonderful week.
