Come and join your fellow FM's and Service Providers for a day and night of education and celebration at our second annual IFMA Carolina's Summit and Gala. This event kicks off with the Educational Summit, followed by a cocktail reception and awards dinner where we will celebrate the leaders in the FM industry in the Carolinas. Awards will be presented in the following four categories: FM of the Year, Associate of the Year, Young Member of the Year and Innovation of the Year. 

To honor the FM's that have led our industry through this bustling economy, any Facility Manager can attend this event for free, regardless of whether they are an active chapter member or not. Service Providers who are active members of one of the five (5) Carolina chapters (Greenville SC, Upstate SC, Charlotte, Triad, Triangle) may purchase tickets for $125 each which provides full access to the educational sessions, cocktail reception and awards dinner and numerous opportunities for networking. Service Providers may also purchase tickets for additional members of their company who are not active members. Service Providers who do not have an active Chapter membership may not attend.

The IFMA Carolinas 2nd Annual Education Summit and Awards Gala is being planned as an in-person event on Thursday, September 16, 2021, at Springhill Suites Charlotte.  We are committed to hosting an in-person event.  We want members (and non-members) to feel comfortable attending; therefore, every effort will be taken to provide a safe environment for all attendees.  Social distancing and mask requirements will be adhered to, and we will be working with the venue to keep everyone safe.  In the event that mandates and restrictions change, or otherwise prevent this event from being held in-person on September 16, all sponsorships and registrations will carry over to the new date.  Registrations will be refunded for all of those who cannot attend the new date.  Thank you for your continued support of the FM industry and IFMA chapters throughout the Carolinas.
