Welcome to the
Kansas City Chapter
International Facility Management Association
First of all I want to thank everyone who helped with our sponsorship campaign. We had a very successful campaign. In total we have six new sponsors and we had 9 current sponsors renew their sponsorship. Please welcome our new sponsors to the KCIFMA family:
Source Building Services, All Systems, Millicare, DMC Service Inc., Turner Construction, Lankford & Associates.
I also want to mention that the Real Estate Expo is right around the corner. It's being held on May 7th at the Overland Park Convention Center. We have some outstanding events going on as well as some outstanding educational opportunities. Please visit www.kcifma.com to register for this annual event. We also have scheduled our CFM exam review class for May 14th. You can register for this also at www.kcifma.com.
On another note, we now have our Education Committee back up and running. You may know one of our Past Presidents, Drew Knutson. He is our new Education Chair and is leading the charge to get some educational opportunities out to our membership again. The board is working closely with Drew to make sure he has all that he needs to successfully get the committee up and running again. If anyone wants to help with education and join this committee please reach out to Drew. Keep an eye on our website for new educational opportunities as the committee starts getting some things scheduled.
The month of April is Earth month. There will be many environmentally themed educational opportunities out there this month through various organizations available to our members. Being environmentally responsible should be a big part of what we are as an organization and what do as professional Facility Managers and other occupations related to the field. Please search out educational opportunities this month and if you find anything worthwhile share it with us. We can post it to our members calendar so that our entire membership base can have the opportunity to take part. We can make a difference in this world for not only ourselves, but the generations to follow. It is a way for us as individuals, KCIFMA as an organization, and FM as a career field to give back to society. I hope you as members agree and do what you can to make environmentally friendly decisions and changes this month as a way to make our world a better and cleaner place to live.
Thank you, Chris Gardner / Kansas City Chapter of IFMA President / President@kcifma.com
