Presidents Message

“You just have to pay attention to what people need and what has not been done.” —Russell Simmons, Def Jam founder

Our focus this late winter and spring will be on bringing chapter members what they want and need.  We will be hosting our 4th Annual Mega Networking Event at the Carolina Hurricanes on February 12th, the Citrix Tour and After Hours Social on February 26th, our 1st Professional Member Event and Annual Sponsor Reception on March 19th and the Golf tournament on April 29th!  We should have an amazing late winter and early spring full of awesome events and hopefully mild weather! 

 We are working hard at continuing our “Celebrating the Facility Management Professional Campaign” that began a few years ago.  Professional member attendance at these events is vital to the success of our chapter and we need your participation and feedback to stay on track with our Chapter Mission and Vision.

Citrix Tour and Social

We welcome our IFMA membership to participate in a tour of the new Citrix office located at 120 S West Street in the warehouse district of downtown Raleigh on February 26th.  The Citrix office is a redevelopment of Dillon Supply Warehouse.  This facility is one of four “Tier 1” sites (more than 500 people) for Citrix in the US.  The tour will start at 3:30 and finish by 5:00PM. Participants will gather in the lobby and they will take groups of 10-15 as they come in.  Tours take about 30-45 minutes.  Light snacks and beverages will be provided.   

The Social after the Tour will be held at Humble Pie, 317 South Harrington Street, Raleigh, NC 27603 immediately following the tour. The location is directly across the street.

PARKING: Street parking is available nearby and is identified by City signage as 1 hour, 2 hour, or metered.  There is also a City pay lot at the corner of West and Hargett streets.  Caution: there is a private lot adjacent to the City lot so pay attention to the signage when you park!  After the tour, the IFMA social located at Humble Pie is about a 2 block walk from the Citrix office. 

Please enter the building through the West Street courtyard between the Citrix parking deck and office building.

Registration will close on Monday, February 23rd.
