Be a leader.

 
 

The IFMA Calgary Chapter is a volunteer lead effort. Together, the Board of Directors sets the agenda, direction, and focus of our Chapter to bring all the best parts of IFMA to Calgarians. Informative tours, networking opportunities, the IFMA open, in-person FMP courses are all carried out by members of the Board of Directors.

This is your opportunity to help take IFMA Calgary to the next iteration. We’ve enjoyed incredible success and are looking for people who want to build a better future for all facility managers with IFMA Calgary.
