April 2019 President’s Message

Dear GTC IFMA members, Is it just me, or does everyone think Spring is arriving slowly this year?  As I write this, the weather forecast calls for temperatures in the 50’s all week.  Again!

March 2019 President’s Message

Dear GTC IFMA members, I’ll start with a quote by Douglas Adams, “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” I recently re-read an article by Anne Cosgrove in Facility Executive magazine that posited, “the age of the ‘accidental facility manager’ [...]

Dear GTC IFMA members, Last month’s message took a look back at the IFMA Greater Triangle Chapter’s accomplishments in 2018…here, at the beginning of 2019, let’s take a look forward.

December 2018 President’s Message

Dear GTC IFMA members, I love this time of year.  It brings back good memories. My past year’s reflections include many happy ones associated with GTC IFMA. There’s an element of pride in those memories as well. We amped up our philanthropic events; a better-than-ever March Madness contest, a gourmet meal at Ronald McDonald House [...]
