Presidents Message
“Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.”
~Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder

Thank you to everyone who filled out our Annual Chapter Survey. While we did not have as many responses as we would have liked, we are eager to review the results and incorporate them into our planning for the upcoming year.  If you missed the survey, please as always, feel free to email any board member to relay your questions or concerns.

Our 1st Professional Member Event & Annual Sponsor Reception was a great success.  Thank you to Randy and Hayden for securing our panelists, they were extremely knowledgeable and exciting to listen to.   This event had been requested for years and we were finally able to bring it to fruition.  Thank you to Networking & Events for your assistance with the event and social.

Last week’s Mike Bradley Memorial IFMA Foundation Golf Tournament was also a huge success. Buck and committee always put on a great event and we were lucky the weather held off.  The tournament nets several thousand dollars for the IFMA Foundation FM scholarship program.  We named the scholarship in Buck’s honor last year (as for years to come).  Thank you all again for such a good time and for raising funds for the IFMA Foundation!

Our sponsorship campaign will begin in mid-May and run into July.  Thank you to all of our sponsors for the 2014-2015 year, because of your generous contributions, we are able to provide the programs and events that make our chapter one of the best around! 

Thank you again for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your president this year, and please do not hesitate to contact me if I can assist in making your IFMA membership better in any way!

Laura Shaw President 2014-2015
