We expanded our education offerings, built strategic connections with the education community in Charlotte, facilitated meaningful and successful FM mentorships, experienced significant membership growth and fostered new partnerships across CRE industry associations. 

None of this would have been possible without the commitment and support of our membership, board members and sponsors.  Thank you to each of you for playing a role in elevating IFMA Charlotte to a new level!  Our chapter has received numerous compliments from other chapters across the US (and IFMA International) and we continue to be noticed!  Let's continue to be a model for IFMA chapters everywhere.

As we look ahead to 2024, we have several exciting programs and events planned that include our monthly chapter meetings, special networking events,  the 5th annual Education Summit and Awards Gala, the annual golf tournament and holiday party, just to name a few.  I encourage all of you to attend as many events as possible because you will gain so much more from your membership as you get more involved.  IFMA Charotte is passionate about making strong connections between our members and fostering meaningful, long-term relationships.

We will continue to enhance education offerings to help our members obtain certifications (FMP and SFP) and CFM credentials and to drive awareness of our industry, the needs we are facing and how members and prospective members can enhance their current FM career or enter the FM industry.  We will work with our members, industry partners and other associations to stay at the forefront of issues impacting the FM industry and the roles of FM professionals.  Just as our industry continues to evolve and change because of multiple factors including changes in the workforce, AI initiatives, the rise in importance of how FM impacts business sustainability and the increased focus on readiness for unprecedented disastrous events, our chapter will work hard to provide the resources you need so that you can be successful.

Let's make 2024 a great year! It will take all of us, get involved as you are able, share IFMA with others in your network and invite someone to an upcoming event!

Thank you,

Chad Runion
President IFMA Charlott
