The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) recently introduced its 2015-16 board of directors and member-elected executive committee members. July 1 marked the beginning of the term as chair for Michael D. Feldman, FMP, CM. Feldman was elected by IFMA membership along with Maureen Ehrenberg, FRICS, CRE as first vice chair and former board member William M. O’Neill, CFM as second vice chair. Members of the executive committee serve one-year terms.
IFMA also welcomes two new board members, Diane Coles-Levine, MCR and Wayne Harvey, CFM, SFP, LEED AP. IFMA board members serve a two-year term beginning July 1.
“It’s indeed an honor to follow in the footsteps of inspired FM leaders who have helped define the globally thriving facility management industry that IFMA supports,” said incoming IFMA Chair Feldman. “FM professionals, more than almost anyone else, appreciate the important work that happens in the background to make an organization like IFMA succeed. This is a time of growth and great opportunity in FM, and I’m excited to be able to build upon the strategic vision of those who have come before. Every piece of IFMA value is possible because of the vision and hard work of IFMA leaders, volunteers, and staff, and I know I speak for the 2015-16 board of directors when I say that we will do everything in our power to live up to the high standards of those who preceded us.”
