I hope everyone is feeling okay and in good health. It has certainly been a long, tenious winter with the flu outbreak. I can attest to that as it has made its way around our office twice. And now we have to turn our concerns to COVID-19, the coronavirus.
Currently The State of Ohio has declared a state emergency and the United States has declared a national emergency. For further information on COVID-19 visit the Center fo Disease Control (CDC), or the Ohio Department of Health.

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 Lindsay Squire and Lisa Davis.
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.
