Welcome to the Utah Chapter of IFMA

October 2015

Dear Facilities Professional:

I am honored and proud to become the new President of the Utah Chapter of IFMA. Our chapter is rich in history.  I have great memories since becoming involved with IFMA and the Chapter 20 years ago. 

Our industry is changing so rapidly that sometimes it is hard to keep up to date, and our goal is to provide educational programs and professional designation opportunities that focus on the core competencies of Facility Management.

•             Communication
•             Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity
•             Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability
•             Finance and Business
•             Human Factors
•             Leadership and Strategy
•             Operations and Maintenance
•             Project Management
•             Quality
•             Real Estate and Property Management
•             Technology

There are some new faces on our board this upcoming year with the addition of Ed Clayson from the Salt Lake City Airport as co-chair of the Professional Designation Committee with Chris Adams.  We are preparing for some exciting professional designation programs in the future.

Also, some members of our board are in new roles this year including:  Larry Rust from the LDS Church will serve as our new Vice President.  In addition, Bryan Gillespie has agreed to continue to stay in the Treasurer role.  Devin Cammack will continue in his role as the Secretary and Erik Brown will continue to serve as the Trustee.  We would like to thank Clayton Thomas for his service as the Chapter President for the past two years.  Clayton will serve as the Past President and we look forward to his incredible insight and assistance.

With all this being said, this is the time to get involved and we certainly can use all the help we can get to insure our chapter continues to thrive.  Make a commitment to attend our great chapter events and to provide feedback.  Please feel free to reach out to me or any of the board members with interest in volunteering on one of our committees.  I learned during my years with IFMA, that you get out what you give, so please let us know if you can spare some time to help.

Participate and be ready to learn, celebrate and meet new people at our events this upcoming year.  The only way forward to continuing to improve the quality of our chapter, is for everybody to get involved.

Hope to see you soon!
