The IFMA Silicon Valley Newsletter ‘THE VOICE: A Journal of Professional development, Collaboration and Community for Facility Professionals”‘ is published quarterly, and is distributed to members electronically.

The Voice starts 2013 by celebrating its 20th Anniversary Edition. We have been moving into a more integrated communications model with slideshows of our events and videos embedded in articles.

In addition to providing coverage on Chapter events, for members who may not be able to attend in person, the newsletter provides insightful articles and increased professional content. Drawing upon the diversity and wealth of experience of Chapter members, the newsletter has delivered articles on a variety of topics, and true to its name, serves as the voice of the Silicon Valley Facilities community.
