Welcome to the Long Island Chapter of the
 International Facility Management Association.

The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) is the premier professional association for facility management. Supporting the largest community of FM professionals in the industry, IFMA membership comprises more than 17,300 facility professionals throughout 55 countries. Our members have a voice in 127 chapters and 15 councils and one special interest group.

IFMA was established in 1980 as a not-for-profit, incorporated association dedicated to promoting excellence in the management of facilities. Globally, IFMA spots trends, conducts research, provides educational programs, and assists corporate and organizational facility managers in developing strategies to manage human, facility and real estate resources. The combined purchasing power of IFMA’s North American members is $81 billion (U.S.) annually.

What is Facility Management?

It is the practice of coordinating the physical workplace with the people and work of the organization. It integrates principles of business administration, architecture and the behavioral and engineering sciences. Although the facility management profession has been in existence since the evolution of the office, only in the past decade has it received worldwide recognition. Business entities have come to realize that maintaining a well-managed and highly efficient facility is critical to success. Trends toward new technologies, environmental consciousness and health concerns also have had a major impact on the importance and need for these professionals in an organization.
