Celebrating our 26-year anniversary, the 2024 Mike Bradley Memorial IFMA Foundation Golf Tournament was another huge success thanks to our membership, participants, volunteers and Lochmere Golf Club (thank you for the 12pm start)!

The primary purpose of our annual golf tournament is to provide the opportunity to network and have fun while raising scholarship funding for future professionals pursuing a career in the facility management industry. Also, this year’s tournament raised approximately $2,000 in mulligan sales to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. Thank you to everyone who supported this effort!
