President's Message


Welcome to the Northern Rockies Chapter (NRC) of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA)! I am delighted that you have found us on the worldwide web, whether intentionally or inadvertently, and hope you will take a moment to poke around our site for valuable information.

NRC was founded by a small group of facility managers (FMs) seeking to engage other facility professionals in our region for the benefit of learning and networking. As such, at the core of our mission is the belief in enrichment through collaboration, which we strive to achieve by encouraging professionals from all segments of our profession to participate in chapter activities. This includes those of us that are practicing FMs, as well as the partners that support us in running our business. We also welcome individuals that have retired from our ranks or aspire to join them. 

The focus of all that we do is YOU, the member. NRC strives to contribute to your professional growth by bringing you the following types of opportunities:

  • Classes and education sessions geared to assist you in earning and/or maintaining your IFMA credentials.
  • Presentations by subject matter experts on topics relevant to the challenges you face as an FM.
  • Tours of unique and interesting facilities in your community.
  • Social events that allow you to meet and interact with other FMs in your area.
  • Trade shows that connect you to those seeking exposure to the latest innovations in products and services.


Because you, as a member, are the focal point of our chapter activities, your participation is crucial to the chapter’s success. The richness of our collaboration experience is directly proportional to the level of engagement from our membership. If you have not yet joined, it would be a pleasure to welcome you as a guest at one of our upcoming events so that we may be introduced.

I would be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to chapter sponsors that are instrumental in making possible so many of our events. I would be even more negligent if I didn’t recognize the selfless and dedicated individuals that have stepped up to serve on the board and other leadership positions, and without whom this chapter would not exist. To all of you, I am deeply grateful for all of your contributions, and honored to serve among you. 

We do our best to keep our website and event schedule current. Please check back in with us regularly to find out about new exciting networking opportunities in your area. If you do not find what you’re looking for in your foray, we invite you to reach out to us directly using the contact information listed on these pages. We look forward to hearing from you on how to best serve your needs.

See you at our next event!
