Neville Devlaliwalla Cisco (1) (640x565)Greetings Chapter Members,

Happy New Year! I hope you all have had a fun and relaxing time off with your family and friends.

This month we have a lot of exciting events going on in the chapter.


  • Monthly Meeting on Wednesday 8th – Topic: “Workplace Violence Prevention”. The program will focus in on creating a safe environment and taking steps to assess and intervene when a threat has been recognized. The speaker Johnny Lee, is the Director of Peace@Work, an agency dedicated to the prevention of violence in and throughout the workplace.
  •  Mega Networking Event on Thursday 23rd. This is a great time to network and have fun at the Charlie Goodnights Comedy Club. We will also have IFMA Internationals Tony Keane join us for this event.


  • Syngenta Tour and Social- Another great opportunity to tour a state of art facility in RTP and network. There is a cap of 90 persons on this so register soon!


You can register for any of these events at this link. Look forward to seeing you there!


As we continue the ‘Celebrating the Facility Management Professional’ campaign past president Jeff Tyburski kicked off last year, we are offering Greater Triangle Chapter of IFMA Golf Shirts to everyone! The first 100 Professional members that signup get 1 free shirt. Associates and all others can get the shirts at a discounted price. Click here to order yours now before we sell out!


In 2014, make it a point to get involved and engaged in IFMA-attend monthly meetings, go to the after-hours socials, join a committee. You will learn, grow and have fun-I did and still do!


I look forward to seeing more of you in 2014!
