President's Corner by Lauren Leipziger, MBA, CFM, FMP

Dear IFMA Central PA Chapter Members,

I am excited to begin my term as President of the Central PA Chapter of IFMA. I would like to thank our outgoing President, Jolene Fink, FMP for her leadership over the past year. Her mentorship and guidance have helped prepare me for this new role. I would also like to thank the board members and committee members who have worked tirelessly to bring recognition to the Central PA Chapter and the facility management profession.

As your new President, I will strive to prioritize IFMA's three pillars--membership, credentials, and events. Along with our newly-elected board, I hope to strenghten the chapter's memebership by increasing awareness of our chapter. As valued members, I urge you to get involved with the chapter by joining a committee, volunteering to greet members and guests at our monthly meetings, sharing your time at a community outreach event, or offering your office as a host for a monthly meeting. Getting involved will help you to get more out of your membership and increase your network. 

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your President over the next year. 

A special thank you to all of our business partners for sponsoring our chapter’s events!  We couldn’t do it without your support! 


Lauren Leipziger, MBA, CFM, FMP

President 2018-2019
