This July, the IFMA Board of Directors met with the IFMA Foundation Board of Trustees in Houston to discuss the association’s priorities for the coming year. The board represents IFMA’s global membership and serves to lead the organization toward its long-term goals. The board of directors convened at IFMA’s Service Center of Excellence in mid-July to meet with staff members and the IFMA Foundation Board of Trustees to set strategic priorities for the fiscal year. Board members discussed their thoughts on the future of FM and what makes facility management a career of choice for the 21st century. IFMA leadership discussed launching change management efforts to improve the organization’s success. Also discussed was continued progress on IFMA’s Strategic Plan, which includes the four key areas of global community, membership, sustainability and knowledge/education. On July 1, 2017, William (Bill) M. O’Neill, CFM, took office as chair of IFMA’s 2017-18 global board of directors.
