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, 2014 Professional Development, 2018 Professional Development, and 2018 Government Affairs. 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

IFMA has announced the winners of the 2018 Awards of Excellence at its World Workplace Conference and Expo in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. The annual awards honor the stand-out achievements of IFMA members, chapters, councils and communities. “Behind each of these awards is the hard work and dedication of FM professionals to achieve results and contribute to something larger then themselves,” said Graham Tier, CFM, FMP, MRICS, chair of IFMA’s global board of directors. “Everything that IFMA accomplishes as a global leader in FM is directly attributable to the effort of our members. We recognize these efforts with awards to demonstrate our appreciation as a community. The Awards of Excellence are our chance to step back and recognize how far we’ve come as an association and an industry, and to thank those colleagues who have set the pace.”

The Denver Chapter of IFMA is the only Chapter to win awards in two categories in 2018: Professional Development & Government Affairs.



Denver Chapter Mentor Program

We have started a new Mentor Program for members. Together with the membership committee and Past President, we will help identify and connect potential mentees, with mentors. Initially three to five chapter members will be selected as mentors who have at least five years-experience in facility management and the chapter. Also, the needs of the mentee will be considered: for someone who works in the public sector, a mentor with public sector experience will be sought out. As the program develops, a mentor chairperson will be assigned to oversee this program.

Mentors will reach out at least on a monthly basis to check-in with the mentee on how they are doing and what issues or concerns they may have with their work. Mentees will need to provide three to five points they want to focus on during their time to help the communication to be focused on the mentees goals. Communication can take place as the mentor and mentee’s agree; in person, phone call, email, other. If your interested, please email us by clicking below.
