Joint Chapter Meeting: IFMA East Bay and IFMA Silicon Valley:

Why Should Facility Managers Participate in Government Affairs?


Working through the Global Government Affairs Committee IFMA seeks to connect the subject matter expertise of our members to inform legislation and highlight the role of effective facility management in achieving public policy goals such as energy efficiency, building health and safety and workforce development. In addition to Advocacy efforts, IFMA works with Public Sector Partners on the regional, national and international level to provide resources and share best practices for the operation and maintenance of public sector buildings.

Join IFMA East Bay and IFMA Silicon Valley in this informative discussion about how IFMA has asserted itself into the political arena.

Three takeaways:

  • Why should Facility Managers participate in Government Affairs?
  • What has IFMA accomplished in Washington DC and the U.N.?
  • How are California IFMA Chapters participating in State politics?
