IFMA Charlotte is hosting the first IFMA Carolinas Education Summit and Awards Gala on March 5, 2020 at The Foundation for the Carolinas. This is another chapter of the collaboration effort spurred by World Workplace 2018 and is the joint effort of the IFMA chapters in Charlotte, Raleigh (Greater Triangle), Greensboro (Piedmont Triad), Greenville, SC (Upstate SC), and Columbia, SC. Combined membership between the 5 North and South Carolina chapters represents over 1,000 members of the FM industry.
There are three education sessions during the afternoon, followed by a cocktail/networking hour. The nightcap will be a buffet-style dinner reception and awards gala.
We are finalizing the program for the education sessions and will be posting those details soon. Award nominations will open soon.
