The Facility Manager of the Year Award

The recipient of this award is someone who exemplifies the principles of professionalism, integrity, and competency on which IFMA was founded. This is the Chapter's most prestigious award. Past recipients have demonstrated innovation and creativity in the execution of their facility management duties, and have contributed significantly to their companies' strategic plan for growth and development of real estate assets. The recipient of this award should be recognized by our membership to enhance his or her own professional standing and to raise awareness of our organization. This nominee is chosen for the overall impact to their company and may not necessarily be within the last twelve months. Eligibility: Any exceptional facility management program or technically-oriented project is eligible. This award is intended to honor those who achieve “above and beyond” the normal scope of job responsibilities. Entries should fall within at least one of the following categories and include a detailed explanation of the person and project. • Communication skills; • Leadership and management; • Finance; • Human and environmental factors; • Maintenance and operations; • Planning and project management; • Quality assessment and innovation; • Real estate The application must be submitted by a member in good standing for at least one year. If the nominee is a member of the Chapter and is recognized with this award, an application will be made for the Georges Graves award at the international level, upon which this award is based. All nominations that do not provide a basis for nomination will be disqualified.

The Associate Member of the Year Award

This award is the highest form of Associate recognition and is given to the member who has contributed a considerable amount of his or her time to the benefit of our chapter. This person is chosen for the time involved in volunteering for our chapter, but more importantly, the integrity of their participation. This recipient is the definition of what an Associate member should be to the rest of our chapter. The nominee must hold an Associate membership in good standing for at least this past year.

The Advocate of the Year Award

This person is not only chosen for the time involved in volunteering for our chapter, but for bringing about positive change for the benefit of our chapter. This person has had a substantial impact on the chapter, and has initiated or implemented ideas that contributed to the continued growth and overall professionalism of our chapter. This nominee is chosen for the overall impact to our chapter, and may not necessarily be within the last twelve months. The nominee must be a member in good standing for at least this past year.

The Committee of the Year Award

The Committee of the Year Award does not require nominations. A list of committees will be provided during the voting process, so that the membership can recognize the committee that has contributed the most to the Chapter over the past year.
