Local networking with professional peers

  • IFMA chapters add special value to your membership experience
    Local Chapter meetings provide you with an opportunity to experience educational programs and take part in tours of noteworthy facilities throughout the Bay Area and Northern California.

Local resources provide industry knowledge, career growth, and extensive networking opportunities. Our Chapter maintains its own web site, local membership directories, and employment referral directories.
  • Best practice sharing with local peers
    Through chapter Web sites, meetings and events, you have the opportunity to talk with peers about workplace challenges and pose industry-related questions, receiving timely answers. Our chapter brings IFMA resources directly to you, making your membership experience more personal.

    The The Redwood Empire Chapter sponsors IFMA educational seminars, offers round table and panel discussions, and presents "hot topic" speakers to members. We also organize certification study groups designed for members planning to take IFMA's CFM exam. Peer support and knowledge sharing contribute to enhancing your professional development.
  • Leadership opportunities
