President's Message

decmessageWhat are you THANKFUL for?

I am thankful for my family and friends, having good health and a wonderful job.

But I am also thankful…for the facility managers and property managers who work long days to make my building great. 

For the security guards who keep me safe back and forth from the parking lot, for the space planners who design a comfortable place to work and for the builders and general contractors who build it.

For the roofers that keep the rain out and the landscapers who make the place beautiful, for the HVAC, electrical and plumbing teams that keep me comfortable, keep the lights on and the water running.

For the coffee, water, and food service staff who fill my tummy and the janitorial staff that cleans up after me. 

For the disaster recovery and maintenance team who fix the facility when things go wrong and the environmentalist who keep the space healthy.

I am thankful for such a wonderful team that helps keep my building so great and wonderful.

Thank you to all my IFMA Team!

Connie Drake, CFM - Little
President 2016-2017

Prom King and Queen

Second chance prom was certainly a “Night to Remember”! 

 With this year’s theme, we had a such a fun time dressing up in our old (or new) prom attire. And what better way to compliment the theme than having our very own prom king and queen. It was hard selecting the best dressed as there were so many to choose from. We are happy to announce the 2016 Greater Triangle Chapter of IFMA’s prom King and Queen (DRUM ROLL PLEASE)……

 Meg and Ed Lavoie! 

 Thank you both for participating and for starting the night off with your first dance!
