The IFMA Houston Experience

June Virtual Meeting Recap!

With approximately 30 people in attendance, IFMA Houston held their first virtual event ever on June 10, 2020. Andy Vawter from MPS presented to the attendees about "Achieving Speech Privacy in Modern Workspaces."

Andy was incredibly knowledgeable and gave the attendees some great information to take back to their offices about the science behind sound, and how sound carries in workspaces. The information is useful, whether you are still working from home or back in the office!

It was so great to see the names and faces of those in attendance! We miss seeing everyone. 

We definitely could not have pulled off a successful event without the assistance of our 2019-2020 Power Sponsor, iOFFICE, who provided the technology and monitoring for the event. 

If you attended the event, but have not had the opportunity to complete the SURVEY, please take a minute and let us know what you thought! With our August event coming up, we would appreciate your feedback, so we can continue to improve our virtual events!


We are going Virtual, Again! Will You Be There?

IFMA Houston did everything we could to see you in August, but we came to the hard decision that it just is not safe, yet, for us to hold an in-person meeting at this time. 

We are so excited to offer something virtually we know you are going to LOVE! IFMA Houston will have a panel discussion with facility managers from a variety of different industries discuss their "Back to Work" Best Practices. With Bart Surratt as our moderator, you will find out from our expert panel what has worked and what hasn't. 

IFMA Houston isn't going to let you walk away empty-handed! We are preparing an e-book for you to be able to take with you as a resource. Who better to learn about the right and wrong ways to bring a company back to the office than a panel of experienced Facility Managers!?

REGISTER TODAY for this amazing opportunity! 

10:45 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.

Registration for this event will be $10 for Members and $15 for Non-Members. 

If your company registers as a 2020-2021 IFMA Houston Sponsor before this virtual event, you can start using your benefits for this event!

Professional Development

"Planning & Project Management for Energy Savings"

IFMA Houston is well aware everyone is focused on what is going on with COVID-19, and the current status in the Houston area. We just wanted to remind you about the May/June Issue of the FMJ which is available in a digital format online. 

There is an article in this issue titled "Planning & Project Management for Energy Savings" by Corey Lee Wilson, and we felt it was worth the read. 

Make sure you take the time to step back from what is going on in the news for a little while every day and take care of yourself. 

Do something you enjoy doing, like reading an article in the May/June issue of the FMJ. 

Let us know what you thought by emailing our Chapter Administrator. What else do you enjoy doing to get your mind off of what is going on around us?
