Chapter News

President's corner by Thomas Koontz, Jr.

Dear Members,

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to lead the Central Pa chapter of the IFMA, as your president for the next year. I have learned a great deal from participating in events held by the chapter and attending the IFMA conferences such as World Work Place and Facility Fusion.  Attending these conferences have been enlightening, being a young individual in the facility management/ maintenance field, as to the importance of continuing to evolve our organization and promoting ourselves to the rest of our community.  Throughout the next year my goals for myself, our board, and our membership are to increase the participation of our current members at the monthly programs and to create an annual program that allows our associate members the chance to promote their brands and companies that they represent.  I believe that a program of this nature will help to promote our associates and to highlight to the associates that they are a key factor in our chapter as they have the most opportunity to promote our chapter to other professionals.

I look forward to working for the chapter for the next year and again thank you for the opportunity.


Tom Koontz, Jr., FMP

President 2016-2017
