Further expansion announced by IFMA

11 January 2019

While confirming new chapters in France and Croatia, the IFMA has also stated it will update the scope and service of its existing groups this year.

Formerly known as the Religious Facilities Council, this has been renamed as the Nonprofit Facilities Council, according to the association's latest update.

The intention behind the new title is to allow the division to further extend its constituency and services.

Formerly known as the Health Care Institute, this is now the Health Care Council and has been restored to full council status.

Chapters, communities and councils within IFMA have been established to provide focused networking groups and are collectively known as "components".

They are designed to allow members to connect on the basis of geography for chapters, facility or industry type for councils, or FM specialisation within communities.

Global board of directors chair Graham Tier said value to members is increasing as the IFMA continues to expand.

"I'm extremely proud of the hard work that has both expanded the localised support IFMA can offer into two new European countries, and also extended IFMA's value to FM professionals who work in health care and nonprofit facilities.

"It's an exciting time to be in FM as IFMA works to overcome fragmentation in our industry," said Mr Tier.
