Attention IFMA Members -  There is a New Registration/Check-In Process for the luncheons. PLEASE READ!!!

Great news….Our chapter continues to grow!  With this growth comes new process so we can best serve our members.  We will be changing our registration/check-in process to allow for better organization and flow at the luncheons.  The new registration/check-in process will be effective in May at the next luncheon (Tuesday May 10th).  Details are as follows:

  • All members must pre-register for the luncheon before the registration deadline.  The deadline to register is the Thursday before the luncheon by 5pm!

  • Registered members will pick up your name tag which will be laid out on a table in alphabetical order by last name.

  • After picking up your name tag, please enter through any of the available doors into the meeting room to begin networking (do not stop at the registration table).

  • If your name tag is NOT on the table, this means you did not pre-register before the registration deadline, and you must visit the registration table to check luncheon availability.  You may be placed on a waiting list until the luncheon begins.  At that time, any pre-registered members that have not attended the luncheon by 11:40am will be forfeiting their spot at the luncheon, and those on the waiting list will be welcomed to fill all available seats (1st come 1st serve basis).
Important information regarding GUESTS!
  • If you would like a guest to attend a luncheon, please be sure to pre-register and/or pay for your guests through the IFMA Denver website, or email the membership committee at membership@ifmadenver.org to arrange attendance.
  • Guests are always welcome!  If your guest is interested in JOINING IFMA and becoming a member, they can come as a guest one time at no cost.  Otherwise, the cost is $60.00 per luncheon (or sponsors can utilize a guest pass).  An example of a guest who must pay the $60.00 luncheon fee would be any out of town individuals, as they are not in this state and would not be a guest that is truly interested in joining the chapter.  Another example would be a guest that has verbalized they aren’t interested in becoming a member.  Please use this guest option ONLY for those truly wanting to check out our association.
  • Members of another IFMA Chapter other than Denver’s may attend at a discounted rate.
  • Please pre-pay for your guests on the website!  Soon there will no longer be an option to pay at the door.
  • All guests must check in at the registration table and will receive a name tag.
  • Any guests not pre-registered will be placed on a waiting list just like non-registered members.  They too will be welcomed to fill all available seats of registered members that do not arrive by 11:40am (1st come 1st serve basis).

Thank you for your attention and support to this new process.  If you have any questions, please contact Membership at membership@ifmadenver.org or the Chapter Administrator at diane@ifmadenver.org.


 Welcome

The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) was founded in 1980. Today it is the world's largest and most widely recognized international association for facility management professionals. The Denver Chapter of IFMA was founded two years later in 1982, making it one of the original chapters since IFMA was established. Since the chapter was established, it has been the largest chapter in the state of Colorado and ranks within the twelve largest chapters in the world. 

In the past decade, the chapter has won numerous IFMA's Awards of Excellence as a large chapter to include: 2007 Website, 2008 Membership, 2008 Professional Development, 2009 Large Chapter of the Year, 2010 Newsletter, 2011 Website, 2011 Membership, and 2014 Professional Development. The awards reflect the chapter's commitment to IFMA's mission of "globally advance and support the practice of the facility management profession".

Annually the chapter reviews and updates its Strategic Plan to ensure it is matched with IFMA's Strategic Road Map. Learn more on the chapter's Strategic Plan.
