Committee Help Needed

Are you looking for a way to network with your fellow IFMA Central Ohio members and get more involved with the Chapter? 

The Committees in IFMA Central Ohio are what makes the Chapter operate efficiently and effectively.  We have a number of committees that need your help:

Programs- This committee selects, schedules and coordinates the monthly programs and tours for the Chapter. The Committee endeavors to help members increase their knowledge and expertise in facility management related topics. This is accomplished by providing programs and tours that bring to the forefront topics of facility management that pertain to the working environment.  

If you're interested in joining this committee, please contact Kelly Waters (614-736-9007 or [email protected]).

Membership- This Committee promotes membership growth and retention by providing new member recruiting events and encouraging new and current members to be involved in chapter events and activities. The committee also conducts quarterly new member events, as well as assists in welcoming/registering attendees at Chapter programs, tours and events. Chapter co-chairs are Emily Kershaw and Lisa Davis. We are looking for a new Co-Chaiir for Membership. 

Associate Membership - This Committee works with our associate members with questions and sponsorship opportunities. Associate members are an important part of the Chapter as we regularly tap into their knowledge base to help our Professionals receive the knowledge they need to perform their responsibilities. Current chair is Jeff Havens.
