Chapter History

IFMA Central PA Chapter - 25th Anniversary Presentation

Chartered - July 25, 1990

About 12 area facility management professionals meeting at what was then Reliable Office Products, wanted to accept IFMA's chapter chartering obligation. Charter President Al Lujan held the office for just over 2 years. By 1993, President Tom Chronister saw membership go over 50 members. Growth remained for President James Noone as President Dave Balinski ushered in the 100th member. President Larry Faber took the chapter to new and higher standards in education. The new millenium was brought in by President Priscilla St. Jacques-Glusko and followed by presidents; Doug Snell, Thomas Hewitt, Charles Claar, Lynn DeSantis, Randy Groff, Michele Sinadinos, Nancy O'Halloran, Matthew Crocker, Kristan Screen, Robert Kleimenhagen, Jr., CFM, SFP, Thomas Koontz, Jr., FMP., Jolene Fink, FMP and current President Lauren Leipziger, MBA, FMP. 

Medium size chapter status

was achieved in just 5 years, through the hard work of the entire organization. Excellent attendance at meetings and quality programming keeps the officer's dedication high, which in turn drives the group to continue towards excellence.

Associate member company support

has been vital to the quality of our programs.

President Lauren Leipziger, MBA, CFM FMP

intends to push the chapter to yet greater heights. You can be part of this exciting time by joining the foremost facility management organization in the world, IFMA International Facility Management Association.
